Vol. XXV. NEW YORK, JANUARY, 1894. No. 1. 


By Asa Bird Gardiner, LI..D., 
Secretary-Genertl of the Society of the Cincinnati. 

The decease, on September 7, 1893, of the Honorable Hamilton Fish, 
LL.D., President-General of the Cincinnati, at his country seat, "Glen- 
clyffe, " near Garrison's-on-the Hudson, N. Y., was a loss to the United 
States of one of its most eminent citizens, whose labors in its service 
had become historic. 

The family of which he was a representative originally settled at Cape 
Cod, Massachusetts, in 1637, from whence the branch to which he 
belonged removed to Long Island. 

His descent was as follows : 

Jonathan Fish, who was born in England about 1610, came to 
New England about 1635, in one of the many ships which then arrived, 
and two years later settled at Sandwich, Barnstable County, Massa- 
chusetts Bay Colony. From thence, in 1659, ^ e removed to Newtown, 
Long Island, in the Province of New York, but then under the Dutch. 
The third child of Jonathan Fish' was Nathan Fish 2 who was born in 
Sandwich, December 18, 1650. The eldest son of the latter was Jona- 
than Fish, 3 whose eldest son was Samuel Fish^ of Newtown, whose 
eldest son was Jonathan Fish, 5 father of Nicholas Fish, 6 who was the 
second child. 

Nicholas Fish was born in the city of New York, August 28, 1758, 
and died there June 20, 1833, and was, at the breaking out of the 
Revolution, a student at law in the office of the Honorable John Morin 
Scott, who became Brigadier-General, and who, on June 2 [, 1776, 
appointed him his Brigade-Major. Five months later, through the 
influence of Brigadier-General Scott, Major Nicholas Fish was, when 
but eighteen years old, appointed Major 2d Regiment New York Con- 
tinental Infantry, which was then being re-organized "for the war,"' 
over the heads of many experienced officers who had served with credit 
under Montgomery at Chamble, St. John's, and Quebec, and under 
Sullivan, Schuyler, and Washington. The wisdom of this selection was 
attested by Major Fish's gallant services. By appointment of Washing- 
ton he became a Division Inspector under Major-General Baron de 
Steuben, and participated in the principal actions with the New York 
Line. Major Fish served with reputation throughout the Revolution- 
ary War, and was breveted Lieutenant-Colonel on September 30, 1783, 
and honorably retired November 3, 1783. With Lafayette, William 

2 Hamilton Fish. [Jan., 

Stevens Smith, and Alexander Hamilton, aides-de-camp to Washington, 
William North, Ebenezer Stevens, and other enthusiastic and noble 
young men, he formed one of a galaxy whom Washington delighted to 
have at his table at headquarters at Newburgh in 1782-83. From April 
13, 1784 to 1793, he was Adjutant-General of the State of New York, 
and from 1797 to 1804, and again in 1805, was President of the New 
York State Society of the Cincinnati. In 1794 he was appointed by 
President Washington United States Supervisor of the Revenue, and from 
1806 to 1 81 7 he was an Alderman of the city of New York. He married 
Elizabeth Stuyvesant, a daughter of Peter Stuyvesant, Esq., who was a 
lineal descendant and heir of the Honorable Peter Stuyvesant, the last 
Dutch Governor, or Director-General, of Nieuw Netherlands. 

Hamilton Fish was the eldest of five children by this marriage, and 
was born in the city of New York, August 3, 1808. He received his 
early education at private schools in his native city, and entered Columbia 
College in 1823, and was graduated in 1827 in the same class with John 
Player Crosby, and Professor William Henry Crosby of the New York 
Cincinnati, Dr. John Clarkson, Henry Onderdonk, Jr., and Professor 
Henry Augustus Du Bois, M.D., LL. D. Mr. Fish then read law in the 
office of Peter Augustus Jay, Esq., and was admitted to the New York 
bar in 1830. 

The limits of this memoir will not admit of a detailed account of his 
subsequent political career, which, whenever opportnnity afforded, always 
redounded to the credit of his country. From March 4, 1843, ne served 
one term as representative in the Twenty-eighth Congress, from the 
Sixth Congressional District of his native city. On November 2, 1847, 
he was elected Lieutenant-Governor of the State of New York, to fill a 
vacancy; and in 1848 was elected Governor, and held that office one 
term. On March 19, 185 1, he was elected a Senator of the United 
States from his State, and at the close of his term, in 1857, went abroad 
with his family for a considerable period. He was in Paris during the 
regime of Napoleon III., when the court etiquette of the Bourbons was, 
as far as practicable, observed, and was, by reason of his office in the 
Order of the Cincinnati, received at a court ceremonial at Versailles with 
special honors. 

In April, 1861, he became prominent as a champion for the preserva- 
tion of the Union, and was chairman of the Union Defense Committee, 
1861-65, and frequently consulted by President Lincoln. On March 11, 
1869, he was appointed United States Secretary of State in the administra- 
tion of President Grant, and held that responsible office with great 
advantage to his country for eight years. In the negotiation of the great 
treaty of Washington with Great Britain for the arbitration of the Ala- 
bama and Fisheries claims ; in the satisfactory settlement of the Virginius 
case with Spain ; in the negotiation of an extradition treaty with Great 
Britain, as well as in other less important diplomatic negotiations; in the 
vigorous assertion of American dominance over Hawaii as against foreign 
interference, and in the steadfast protection of American interests in 
every quarter of the globe, he won an enduring reputation, and by his 
labors potentially aided in placing the United States in the forefront of 
the nations of the world. So tactful, quiet, but unremitting, were his 
labors in the great Alabama claims matter, that his countrymen hardly 
realized the obligations they were under to him for the successful and

satisfactory termination of an international question, which, sooner or 
later, would have resulted in war. As years have gone by, his diplo- 
matic foresight and acumen have been more and more realized and 
appreciated, and it only remained for the very recent work (just pub- 
lished) of Mr. J. C. Bancroft Davis, entitled "Mr. Fish and the Ala- 
bama Claims : a Chapter in Diplomatic History," to show how much 
the American people were indebted to this patriotic and able statesman 
for the vindication of its rights under the Law of Nations. 

In the office of Secretary of State, Hamilton Fish will rank with 
Thomas Jefferson, John Quincy Adams, Daniel Webster, William L. 
Marcy, and William H. Seward, whose services are enduringly written in 
their country's history. Secretary Fish's diplomacy was, as has been 
aptly said, not only successful in its immediate object, but has been 
vindicated in its wisdom by lasting results of high utility ; and it must 
have produced a grateful feeling in his honored old age to watch the 
beneficent operation of the treaties he had dictated, and the international 
relations he had established. 

In 1840 he became a Trustee of Columbia College, and in 1859 was 
chosen President of its Board of Trustees and continued in that capacity 
until his decease. He received the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws 
from his own Alma Mater in 1850 ; from Union College in 1869, and 
from Harvard University in 1871. From 1867 until he became Secretary 
of State, he was President of the New York Historical Society. He was 
.also a Trustee of the Lenox Library and Astor Library, and a Trustee 
of the " Peabody Educational Fund," and was for a time President of 
the Union League Club. Inheriting an ample fortune, he was enabled 
to fulfill the social duties incumbent on the position he occupied as a 
leader of society, and the elegant hospitdity of his home in Washing- 
ton, while head of the State Department, was a marked feature of the 
social side of President Grant's administration. 

The relations sustained by Secretary Fish to the Society of the Cincin- 
nati were peculiarly interesting. On July 4, 1834, he was admitted an 
hereditary member as the eldest son of Major and Brevet Lieutenant- 
Colonel Nicholas Fish, deceased, and in 1844 was elected Treasurer of 
the New York State Society of the Cincinnati, an office he continued to 
hold until elected President of that State Society, July 4, 1855. Mean- 
while, in 1848, he. became Vice-President-General of the Cincinnati, and 
on May 17, 1854, he was chosen by the General Society to be President- 
General, vice General Henry Alexander Scammel Dearborn, of Massa- 
chusetts, deceased, and continued in that high office until his death, at 
which time he was the senior hereditary member in date of admission. 

Secretary Fish was the ninth President-General of the Cincinnati, his 
predecessors having also all held office respectively until their decease. 

They were : 

17S3. His Excellency General George Washington, LL.D., of Virginia. 

1800. Major-General Alexander Hamilton, LL.D., of New York. 

1805. Major-General Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, LL.D., of South Carolina. 

1825. Major-General Thomas Pinckney, of South Carolina. 

1829. Major-General Aaron Ogden, LL.D., of New Jersey. 

1839. Major-General Morgan Lewis, of New York. 

1844. Brevet Major William Popham, of New York. 

1845. Brigadier-General Henry Alexander Scammel Dearborn, of Massachusetts. 
1854. Hon. Hamilton Fish, LL.D., of New York. 

a Hamilton Fish. [Jan., 

Of Vice-Presidents-General during this period of one hundred and ten 
years, four were from Massachusetts, three from Pennsylvania, three from 
New York, two from New Jersey, two from South Carolina, and one from 
Virginia, Major-General Horatio Gates, LL. D. Major Popham was the 
last of the Continental Line of the Revolution chosen President-General. 

The peculiar and remarkable respect and uncommon attention and 
affection which the Cincinnati had shown President-General Washington 
was, to nearly as great a degree, bestowed on all his successors. Presi- 
dent-General Fish had the unbounded regard of the members, which he 
reciprocated, and in the closing years of his life he gave much thought 
to the principles of the institution and the purposes of the founders. 

When he became Vice-President-General, in 1848, but few of the ven- 
erable and honored original members survived, and in 1854 the last of 
them, Robert Burnet, passed away. 

With the difficulty of communication before the era of railways, tele- 
graphs, and frequent and cheap postal rates, and by reason of the absence, 
at great distances, of properly qualified descendants of original members, 
who were thereby debarred from acquiring hereditary membership, the 
Society of the Cincinnati had gradually diminished in numbers until it 
was perceived that it was liable to extinction at no distant day. Presi- 
dent-General Dearborn, in a communication to the General Society 
dated November 29, 1S4S, called attention to this fact, and suggested 
the adoption of some such rule concerning admissions of members as had 
been contained in a report made to the South Carolina State Society 
on March 4, 1799, adding that, in his opinion, " unless such a measure 
is adopted, this time-honored and glorious association will cease to exist 
within less than a third of a century, or be so reduced in numbers as to 
be unavailable for the purposes of its organization." The General 
Society, on the same day, appointed a committee of which Mr. Fish was 
a member, to consider "if it be not expedient and proper to suspend, 
alter, or abrogate the limitation with regard to the admission of mem- 
bers, "and to inquire and report what alterations are necessary and proper 
on the subject. This committee brought in a report at the next trien- 
nial meeting in May, 185 1, submitting, in amendment of the Institution, 
an "ordinance relative to the succession and admission of members," 
making eligible all male descendants of officers of the Revolutionary 
Army. . The ordinance, however, failed of ratification by the several 
State societies, and consequently the Institution remained as originally 
adopted in May, 1783. At the next triennial meeting of the General 
Society, held in Baltimore in May, 1854, President-General Fish was 
member of a committee which reported new resolutions on the subject 
of admissions, giving to every State society "full right and power to 
regulate the admission of members both as to the qualifications of the 
members and the terms of admission," whereby more than one descend- 
ant of an officer of the Continental Army or Navy could be admitted. 
He voted for the resolutions and for a submission of them to the several 
State societies, in order that, upon consent being given by each of the 
State societies, the same should become operative, and each State society 
be "at liberty to act urxm the power given thereby." This amendment 
or alteration of the Institution also failed of ratification by the refusal in 
one ir 'ance, and neglect in others, of several State societies to ratify the 
resolve,,. Thereupon, at a special meeting of the General Society held 

1 894 -] Hamilton Fish, - 

in Trenton in May, 1856, so much of the resolutions of 185 1 as required 
the consent of the several State societies in order to make them valid, 
was rescinded. Neither the Rhode Island nor New York State societies 
were represented at this meeting, nor was President-General Fish able to 
leave his duties in the United States Senate to attend. For a limited 
period the New York State Society, from 1857 to i860, enlarged its rules 
of admission under this questionable action of the General Society, and 
admitted for iheir own lives only several descendants of original members, 
two of President-General Fish's own family being thus admitted to repre- 
sent, with himself, his father. 

The rapid extension of the railway system of the United States, and 
increased facilities of communication, soon thereafter enabled proper 
descendants to claim their hereditary membership. The apprehension of 
extinction of the Society, which had induced these resolves, was thus dis- 
sipated, and the necessity for any relaxation of the prescribed rules as to 
admissions was obviated. The admission of more than one descendant 
to represent the same propositus not having been found to be satisfactory 
within the scope and intent of the Institution, President-General Fish 
came to the conclusion, upon mature deliberation, that, as the necessity 
for any relaxation of the strict rule had passed away, it ought henceforth 
to be rigidly adhered to. 

The rise and progress of the patriotic society of the ''Sons of the 
Revolution," from their first meeting in the hall of the New York Histor- 
ical Society, on December 18, 1875, f° r consultation and organization, 
was viewed with lively interest and satisfaction by President-General Fish, 
who was wont to term the members "younger brothers of the Cincinnati. " 
Considering as he did the Society of the Cincinnati to be merely the 
symbolism of certain great principles enunciated in their Institution, to be 
perpetuated through the eldest male posterity of original members and 
their associates, he perceived in the "Sons of the Revolution " a society 
of descendants of Revolutionary patriots, who, in their laudable objects 
and purposes, supplement the Society of the Cincinnati, and are destined 
to carry on in a national way the work long performed, from 1783, by the 
"Society of the Revolution" of South Carolina, in fraternal unison with 
the Cincinnati. 

At the last triennial meeting of the General Society of the Cincinnati, 
held in Boston, Mass.. in May-June, 1893, President-General Fish, by 
reason of infirmity of years, was unable to attend. Deeply solicitous in 
its affairs, he corresponded constantly with the Secretary-General as to its 
business and kept himself thoroughly informed. On June 9, 1893, he 
addressed his "dear Brethren " of the General Society, and, after express- 
ing his deepest regrets at being unable to be with them, earnestly wrote 
as follows : 

" I beg to commend especially to your calm and wise consideration, 
the establishing of an uniform rule, to be observed by all the State 
societies, as to the qualification of applicants for admission to the Society. 
In this each State society is a Trustee of the interests and character of 
each of its associate State societies, and I beg permission to commend to 
vour decision the strictest possible adherence to the intent of our Institu- 
tion, to confine admissions to the blood of those who instituted the Society 
and of their associates in the War of the Revolution, in the right line of 

6 Long Island {N. V.) Marriages and Deaths. [Jan., 

After referring to having been honored for thirty-nine years with the 
President-Generalcy of the Society, he concludes as follows : 

"With most profound gratitude for your long-continued favor and 
for your generous indulgence, and with affectionate regards to each and 
every of our members, my earnest prayer is that God may bless our 
Society of the Cincinnati, eslo perpetua." 

In compliance with his solemn injunction, the whole subject concern- 
ing admission of members was referred to the Standing Executive Com- 
mittee for report and recommendation at the next General Meeting. 

Upon the occasion of his obsequies at St. Philip's Church in the 
Highlands, on September n, 1893, a representation of the Society of the 
Cincinnati attended, including a special delegation from the New York 
State Society, and were accorded the position of principal mourners, next 
after the immediate family. The several State societies have since adopted 
appropriate resolutions, which, however, were not necessary, as the affec- 
tionate respect and esteem always entertained by the Cincinnati for their 
late honored and venerated President-General was well known.

When the philosopher Zeno in the fifth century B.C. consulted the 
oracles as to what manner he should live, the answer was, "Inquire of 
the dead." 

It was an ancient custom to seek in cemeteries for counsel to guide 
the conduct, and for inspiration to invigorate the purpose.

predominate over the present, advances us in the dignity of thinking 

•'Human intelligence, " says one of the late honored presidents of 
this society, "has never yet succeeded in improving upon the divine 
model of the family relation," and it is this relation which furnishes both 
the occasion and material, for Genealogy. 

"Pulse-beats smile down the strongest tyrannies," says Charles 
Martyn ; and it is the heroic spirit of the God-fearing Huguenot, of a 
Huss, a Luther, a Calvin, and a Washington, which has transformed 
societies, and which, unapproachable as the sun, has always, throughout 
the centuries, through seas of blood, pressed on towards the just, the 
beautiful, the true, thus raising more and more the head of the people 
towards the right, and the head of the individual towards God. 

'Hie first great movement for liberty of conscience and freedom, civil 
and religious, was not, in France, an importation, for God had deposited 
the first principles of the work in a few brave hearts of Picardy and Dau- 
phiny before it had begun in any other country of the globe. It was the 
voice of the Protestant Lefevre of Etaples, France, a man of great nobil- 
ity of soul, which was to give the signal of the rising of this morning star 
of liberty. He it was who taught Farel, the great reformer and master 
builder with Luther. 

There are many who regard genealogical records as dry and tedious, 
and so, I confess, they may be made to be as prepared by some writers ; 
but let us not forget that it is out of such details, found so often in musty 
rolls and time-stained parchments, that history is made. This presenting 
of items of family biography is by no means an idle, dilettante pursuit, 
but the beginnings of living science, vital to the profoundest philosophy. 
We pay honor to the dead when we thus show their relations to the 

Even a moral can be drawn from the Vision of the Prophet in the 
valley which was full of bones of the dead. He sets it forth in a "bony 
light" indeed. "There were very many in the open valley, and 1o, 
they were very dry." It was apparently a most unpropitious field, yet it 
proved to be one which it was well to cultivate. These dry bones were 
found to be capable of living. There came a voice, and a shaking, and 
the bones came together every bone to its fellow bone ; flesh and skin 
came upon them ; breath entered into them, and they lived and stood 
up. That is what we are attempting. Each of us has a regard for the 
bones of his own family stock, and we shall soon find bone matching 
bone. History is made in such ways. All history is but a connecting 
together in their proper place of the achievements of individuals. His- 
tory is the beginning of all science ; without it we are little better than 
akin to the beasts that perish. 

I am in full sympathy, too, with the glorious individuals who were 
fust to establish their name. I would do them honor as constituting the 
true order of nature's nobility. I cannot appreciate the feeling of Sir 
Walter Scott when he exulted rather in obtaining the office of High Sheriff 
of Lanark than in being the author of the works that rendered his name 
immortal. When the dwarf bragged of having descended from a race of 
giants, the Irishman was just in his comment, that it was "a divil of a 
descent that he had made." 

1894.] Genealogy: lis Aims and lis Utility. 2^ 

Of the class of evolutionists who would derive their ancestry from the 
ape races, we may only question how far they descended below the moral 
and mental attitude, of their progenitors, for very likely they were very 
respectable monkeys. It would have been sad for the products of their 
family tree to deteriorate. Nor are we saying much for those 

" Whose noble blood 
Crept through scoundrels since the flood." 

We prefer by far the lineage set forth by the elder Alexandre Dumas 
to the man who taunted him with having negro blood : '' My father was a 
quadroon, my grandfather was a negro, my great-grandfather was an ape ; 
my family line begins at the point where yours ends." 

But to be well fathered and well mothered is of untold advantage. 
Such are less liable to be handicapped in life, and are better able to 
contend against its besetments. The descendant of a worthy ancestry is 
enabled to honor his father and his mother, having his days long in the 
land, and his reputation and achievements in keeping with the glorious 
name of those who lived before him. We expect worthy acts from those 
of better race. Always have men been of that conviction. 

The historian Gibbon once remarked that " a lively desire of know- 
ing and recording our ancestors so generally prevails, that it must depend 
on the influence of some common principle in the minds of men." If 
we look over ancient literature for the account of some famous man, we 
find a careful record preserved of his ancestry. Herodotus, the Father of 
History, is very particular to tell us of the lineage of every prince, every 
chieftain and man of eminence. Except he had a pedigree, he was 
regarded as of small account. We can trace the ancestry of Solon, Pei- 
sislratus, Pericles, Plato, and others, to the time, when Grecian history 

Homer, when describing his more famous heroes, is diligent to recite 
their parentage. They were cal'ed heroes, not, as we would suppose, 
because of their exploits, but because their lineage was divine. In 
Grecian story a hero was considered as half a god. 

So, too, on the celebrated inscription at Behistan, Darius, the founder 
of the Persian Empire, is careful to record his ancestry. 

" I am the Great King, king of kings," the inscription reads. " From 
ancient time our family have been kings. Eight of my line have been 
kings before me; I am the ninth. We nine have been kings by lineal 

Shall we not turn to the Bible itself? We find a persistent endeavor 
to trace the lineage to remote antiquity. Witness the pains in the Book 
of Chronicles to include families in the roll of honorable descent. "All 
these were reckoned by genealogies in the days of Jotham, King of 
Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam, King of Israel." 

No man could serve as priest except his genealogy was pure. "The 
stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death," was the law. He was 
further forbidden to profane his lineage by marrying a wife of equivocal 
character cr parentage. When Jeroboam I. attempted to restore a local 
worship among his subjects, the Israelites, it was imputed to him as a sin 
that he made priests of the lowest of the people, as did the Samaritans 
afterward. The " lowest of the people," it is almost needless to say, were 
men who had no genealogical tree. 

26 Genealogy : Its Aims and Its Utility. [Jan., 

Again, we are twice told that when the Jews returned with Zerubbabel 
from the Captivity, of the priests, three family groups "sought their 
register among, those that were reckoned by genealogy, ' but it was not 
found, and therefore were they, as polluted, put from the priesthood. 

Similar pains were bestowed in respect to the Hebrew kings. Heze- 
kiah was carefully described as having David for his father, as though but 
for his lineage he were unworthy to reign. To sit upon the throne of 
David, he must be of the house of David. The Jews would not revere a 
sovereign who had not a genealogy in their public records. 

This was equally the case elsewhere, and that sentiment holds good 

I am aware that this age is largely utilitarian, and that the many 
are little disposed to prize anything which has not immediate mate- 
rial advantage. I have often wondered that such individuals did not 
hesitate at such a waste of time and money as to put away the bodies of 
their dead, when it was so easy to utilize them, and so absurd to waste 
sentiment on them. I have little regard for the self-made men who so 
constantly worship the self that they consider made them. It was a piti- 
ful creature that they made. 

Nevertheless, I believe that it is proper that I attempt to set forth the 
use of genealogical study. It is the science of all civilization, all culture, 
all history, all that makes life worth living. It teaches us our kinship to 
the human race, our duty to one another, our interest in the welfare of 
all mankind, our share in each other's joys and each other's griefs, how to 
be useful and thereby good. 

Even the story of poverty, suffering, and crime is vitally intertwined 
with the problems of genealogy. We may not seek to evade our account- 
ability by disclaiming that we are not our brother's keeper. We owe to 
every human being to afford to him an opportunity to obtain, so far as may 
be in our power, the fullest means of happiness and usefulness.' The crim- 
inal classes, the criminals themselves, are often the result of our culpable 
disregard of our fraternal relationship to them, rather than simply of the 
inspiration of their inherent depravity. They are permitted to be engen- 
dered and born into conditions that make crime the breath of their life, 
if not the necessity of their existence: The sons and daughters of crimi- 
nal parents are more naturally inclined to crime than these parents them- 
selves. We may not arrest their birth or prevent their propagation, but 
we owe it to them to do all in our power to purify the fountains of parent- 
age, so that only a pure and worthy offspring shall be the result. The 
aim of penal legislation should be reformation ; vengeance lor crime is but 
brutal savagery. We should aim to have better parents and better oppor- 
tunities, and then we may hope, as we now cannot, for generations pure, 
healthful, and virtuous. In this way the slums will be abolished and 
homes established in their place. 

Genealogy is more than a mere array of skeletons, the dry details of 
parents and offspring, but a bringing into view of the relations and inter- 
ests which these details show to be clearly and vitally allied. We learn 
from the study why nations exist, why they are in alliance or hostility, 
why particular institutions are established and maintained, why the arts 
are cultivated which embellish our social life and bind us more firmly 
together. It shows us concerning religion, which is man's supreme effort 
to attain the good, that it has existed from the farthest antiquity, from a

worship at a common family hearth, by virtue of which all who partici- 
pated were sharers in a common fraternal life and belonged in the same 
divine care. We get some clew to the reason why Socrates preferred to 
drink the hemlock and die at once, to making his escape from the prison 
to live the life of an exile in another country. The first worships embraced 
the ancestors in their scope, and bound families and peoples together by 
a sacred tie, to rupture which was to become outcast, out of law, civilly 
dead, " cut off from the people." He could say with Romeo: 

" Hence banished is banished the world, 
And world's exile is death." 

' It is a hopeful fact in the history of our country that a greater enthu- 
siasm has sprung up for genealogical study. The societies of Sons and 
Daughters of the American Revolution, Colonial Dames, and Societies of 
Colonial Wars, are creating emulation among those whose ancestry first 
subdued the soil, established towns and churches, and finally made of 
their colonies a country and a nation. Our various Genealogical and 
Historical Societies are encouraging the same sentiment. Let the wolf 
of the forest forget its young and ignore its ancestry: man, being in the 
image of his Divine Parent, duly regards both. He is thus a neighbor 
and a citizen, not an outlaw or Ishmaelite. 

We learn therefore to revere one another. Our neighbor is also our 
brother or our sister, "bone of our bone, and flesh of our flesh." Our 
relations are intimate, and not antagonistic. The welfare of one is the 
welfare of all. As the foot and the hand in the human body are dependent 
upon each other and have a common life, so the capitalist and employer 
in social life are fellow-dependents with the laborer and employed. If 
either suffers, the other is inevitably certain to experience calamity. It is 
not from the mere strikes and street conflicts that the danger comes, but 
from the hopeless despair and fraternal hate of those who have no home, 
no civil rights, no country. 

And when such as these, defective and delinquent, come under the ban 
of our laws, we must not forget that in the new penology the old princi- 
ple of punishment must give place in part to the better and truer methods 
of reformation ; the "criminal must be studied instead of studying the 
criminal act, for there are two factors in crime— psycho-physical organi- 
zation, and external circumstances or environment." And here comes in 
that most important aid and factor, genealogy. But a few days since, as 
one of a committee appointed in our Charities Aid work to examine the 
latest of prison reformatory methods, I was shown at the Reformatory at 
Concord, Mass., the collection of large volumes in which are written bio- 
graphical records of over 4,000 prisoners. Here were inquiries covering 
the complete ancestral history for one or two generations of criminals, 
evidences of degeneration and disease, mental endowments and condi- 
tions, degree of moral sense and general sensitiveness; every record being 
made by the superintendent in person. Impressions aie received and 
information obtained, which, as the sentences are indeterminate, suggest 
the best course of treatment, spiritually, mentally, and physically, and thus 
the prisoner goes into that training reformative and regenerative, and not 
alone punitive, which in so many thousands of cases has, in God's provi- 
dence, not only recovered our enemy the criminal to a respectable, self- 
supporting place in society again, but has, by a renovating physical, edu-

cational, and technological regime, superinduced in his consciousness the 
dawning idea of a Creator who is the common Father of us all, and with 
this an uplifting sense of brotherhood and universal kinship. 

Such is the course being now pursued in seventeen different reforma- 
tories in our country, and without the aid of the science of genealogy it 
may well be said that none of the beneficial results which we now see 
could possibly have been attained. 

I had somewhat more to say as to details in regard to records of 
heredity, but space forbids. And now, in conclusion, permit me to urge 
upon the reader's attention the serious advantages of every one's preserv- 
ing, with thoughtful care, every record connected with your family his- 
tory ; a history which grows more valuable each hour. There is always 
some one about the home fireside who, if encouraged and aided, will make 
this his or her study, and often too it is one who, by unselfish devotion to 
study rather than to baiter and gain, has been left with but a small portion 
of this world's goods. Let that one, my rich and busy friend, be your 
treasured and helpful historian. 

Do not forget that, as each one of us can bear witness, it is the dear 
old family Bible we learned first to know at a loving mother's knee, that 
contains the family records ; and surely we should hold as sacred, not 
only its priceless teachings, but also those short but touching family his- 
tories, often tear-stained, which have been there written by a brave father 
or a sainted mother. God grant that now, in this day of great machines, 
combines, and greed of gold, our people may learn anew how to truly 
revere a noble lineage and a Bible-loving parentage. Remember 

" The honors of a name 'tis just to guard ; 
They are" a trust bat lent us, which we take, 
And should, in reverence to the donor's fame, 
With care transmit them down to other hands. 
How vain are all hereditary honors, 
These poor possessions from another's deeds. 
Unless our own just virtues form our title 
And give a sanction to our fond assumption."

Among the first of the Dutch clergy, educated in the universities of 
Holland, and sent to this country by the Classis of Amsterdam, was 
Dominie Laurentius Van Gaasbeek. From entries made in his family 
Bible, extracts from which are still preserved in other family Bibles, it is 
learned that he was the son of Goevert Van Gaasbeek and Jacomyntje 

, presumably residents of Leyden, Holland. From the same record 

it is learned that his parents had three children, if not more, viz. :

1. Dominie Liurentius 1 ; born in Holland, died at New York City 
February, 1680. The first of the family to arrive in America, and pro- 
genitor of all who bear his name in this country. From his diploma, 
received from the University of Leyden, it appears that he was graduated 
from that university with honors May 25, 1674, receiving the degree of 
M.D.* On the 28th of May, 1673, ' ie was married in the High Dutch 
Church at Leyden, by Dominie Johannes Muller, to Laurentia Van de 
Kellenaar (died May 3, 1703), sister of Sarah Van de Kellenaar, who 
married Dominie Johannes Weeckstein, the third pastor of the Dutch 
Church at Kingston, N. Y. After having been without a regular pastor 
for about ten years, the Dutch Church at Kingston entered into the 
following agreement. 

"We, ihe underwritten members of the three congregations having 
agreed on the salary of the preacher, bind ourselves to support the 
minister for eight years. Hurley shall pay 100 schepels of wheat, Marble- 
town 160 schepels of wheat, and Kingston 400 schepels of wheat, and in 
case they will call a minister alone, information shall be given to the 
other towns one year prior, to provide for themselves, if not, this remains 
in full force. In acknowledgment to, and to have this observed and un- 
broken, they have hereto written their own names this 26 th of September

Coincident with the preceding, the Consistory made out a call or 
request to the Classis of Amsterdam for a pastor to be sent out to them 
by that body. The original call in the Dutch language, with the signa- 
tures of the Consistory, was brought back to this country by Dominie 
Van Gaasbeek, as part of his credentials, and is still preserved. A trans- 
lation follows : * 

"To the Honorable and Most Worthy Classis at Amsterdam. 
Honorable Sirs : 
Whereas, in the Esopus district, under the jurisdiction of New York, 
there are three villages at present without a teacher or official preacher ; 
we have conjointly raised six hundred schepels of wheat to be applied to 
the support of a preacher in behalf of the three aforesaid villages which 
with regard to assistance are placed too far away from' another. There- 
fore. we feel constrained to bring before your honorable body our need of 
your assistance (in your ^official capacity) in finding a preacher for us, 
willing to come here for living wages. A man of high trust and sound 
doctrine may enjoy the term of his»wages for years, while we bind our- 
selves to pay him upon the arrival of his journey here. Moreover the 
preacher shall have his dwelling and firewood free. Meanwhile are we 
anxiously looking for the coming of a well qualified teacher. We also 
remain until further your humble brethren and servants in Christ Jesus,

In response to this call, Dominie Van Gaasbeek, duly accredited by

the same month. In consequence of the protracted vacancy in the pas- 
torate, the church had become somewhat weakened and scattered. 
Dominie Van Gaasbeek at once set to work with vigor to recover some 
of the ground lost in the previous eleven years. He was zealous in the 
work of the church and faithful in the discharge of his duties. A blessing 
attended his efforts, so that in one year the membership increased to one 
hundred and eighty. D.uring his pastorate a new and substantial stone 
church, forty-five by sixty feet, was erected on the northeast corner of 
Wall and Main Streets. It was built in true Holland style, with highly 
colored, painted window glass bearing the coat-of-arms of William, Prince 
of Orange. The new edifice was completed and dedicated about January 
i, 1680. Dominie Van Gaasbeek did not live long to enjoy and preach 
in the new and commodious church, as his career was cut short by death, 
February, 1680. He was taken sick with a fever, and for medicak treat- 
ment went to New York where he died. His unexpected 'death filled the 
minds of the people with sadness, and cast a gloom over the prospects of 
the young church, which had flourished so much under his fostering care. 
Dominie Van Gaasbeek was a man of culture and refinement, having 
been educated both as a physician and clergyman, and was familiarly 
called the "Dominie Doctor." He was a member of the first ecclesias- 
tical body of the Dutch Church in America. In the year 1679 Governor 
Andros authorized and directed the Dutch clergy to form a Classis and 
ordain Peter Tesschemaeker, then a candidate for the ministry. Accord- 
ingly Dominies Van Nieuwenhuysen, Schaats, Van Gaasbeek, and Van 
Zuuren formed a Classis and examined and ordained Tesschemaeker to 
the ministry. The proceedings of this Classis, convened at the call of an 
Episcopal Governor, were afterwards confirmed by the Classis of Amster- 
dam. The widow of Dominie Van Gaasbeek, Laurentia Kellenaar, 
married (1681) her second husband, Major Thomas Chambers, Lord of 
the Manor of Foxhall, who departed this life April 8, 1694, leaving his 
property to the children of the Dominie, and devising his Manor to the 
Dominie's only son upon the condition of his assuming the surname of 
Chambers. Laurentia Kellenaar married September 26, 1695, her third 
husband, Wessel Ten Broeck, Sr., a sketch of whom will be found in the 
Record, Vol. XIX., page 69 (April, iSSS).

ius-Groen " was adopted as the surname. They were both Roman Catholics. Their 
son Jacob, a Protestant, came to this country on account of religious persecution.

ard was son of Samuel Bayard and Anna Stuyvesant, the tatter a sister of 
Gov. Peter Stuyvesant, in whose company she came to New Amsterdam 
in 1647. She was a widow, and faced the dangers and hardships of a new 
country for the. opportunities it offered to her three sons, who came with 
her, viz., Nicholas Bayard, Mayor of New York City 1685, Peter Bayard, 
and Balthazar Bayard. These men all hecame wealthy and influential. 
Blandina Kiersted was daughter of Dr. Mans Kiersted and Sarah Roeioftse 
Janse (m., Dutch Church, N. Y., June 29, 1642). The latter was a 
daughter of Roeloff Jansen and Annetje Webber, more familiarly known 
to her descendants as " Anneke Jans." Abraham was an infant when his 
father died. His mother, I.aurentia Kellenaar, married, 168 1, Major 
Thomas Chambers, Lord of the Manor of Foxhall, and at once took up 
her residence at the mansion house of the Manor. No children blessed 
this marriage. Thomas Chambers, disappointed in the hope of having 
children of his own, took great interest in the three young children of his 
wife. Abraham, the son, became his especial favorite, being fifteen years 
old when his stepfather died, April 8, 1694. Abraham knew no other 
father than Thomas Chambers, and the latter esteemed the boy as if he 
were his own. By his last will, dated April 5, 1694, after providing for 
the two daughters of his wife, he leaves his entire Lordship and Manor 
and other estate to Abraham, upon the condition of his assuming the sur- 
name of Chambers. In his will he provides that Abraham "is to be 
brought up and taught so farr as possible untill he come to age." The 
estate was left in possession of the widow until Abraham should be of age, 
which was in December, 1700, when Abraham Gaasbeek Chambers became 
Lord of the Manor of Foxhall, vested with all its privileges and estates, 
becoming the richest and one of the most influential men in the 

Third Generation.

most esteemed son, and heir apparent to the Manor of Foxhall. In 
1750 his father deeded to him large portions of the Manor. One deed, 
bearing date of December 3, 1750, is in consideration of two thousand 
pounds. Another, dated April 3, 1752, is in consideration "of the 
natural love and affection, and for the advancement of the said Thomas." 
In 1738 Thomas was cornet in the company of troopers under command 
of Capt. John Ten Broeck. He died 1752, and was buried in the Fox- 
hall family vault at the Strand (Rondout), which stood where the pres-.

Dr. Newland Maynard spoke on "Sacred Art and Mediaeval Architecture," as shown 
in the English Cathedrals, and Mrs. Julia Ward Howe read a paper on Mrs. Lucy 
Stone Blackwell. November 24th an interesting business and conversational meet- 
ing was held, and December 8th Mr. Josiah Collins Pumpelly delivered an address on

with, H. C. F. Randolph, Morris P. Ferris, Frederick G. Swan, C. La Rue Munson.

Edward Marsh. 

Honorary — Mrs. Julia Ward Howe. 

The twenty-fifth anniversary of the formation of the society will occur February 
27, 1894, and it has been decided to celebrate the event in an appropriate manner. 
A committee has been appointed for that purpose, consisting of the following gentle- 
men : Theophylact 15. Bleecker, Samuel Burhans, Jr., Thomas C. Cornell, S. Victor 
Constant, Henry T. Drowne, Dr. Ellsworth Eliot, James J. Goodwin, Gen. George 
S. Greene, Richard H. Greene, Dr. William F. Holcombe, Rufus King, Charles L. 
Lamberton, Herbert D. Lloyd, J. Pierpont Morgan, Howland Pell, John V. L. 
Pruyn, Josiah C. Pumpelly, Dr. Samuel S. Purple, Frederick D. Thompson, Cornel- 
ius Vanderbilt, A. V. W. Van Vechten, and T. A. Wright, and the President, 
Secretary, and Treasurer of the society, ex-officio. This committee organized by the 
appointment of Dr. S. S. Purple as chairman and Richard H. Greene as secretary, 
and decided to give a reception on the afternoon of the anniversary day, and to hold 
a meeting in the evening at which addresses on subjects connected with the Society's 
work should be delivered. Much interest has been manifested in the proposed cele- 
bration, and it is hoped and believed that it will greatly advance the welfare of the 


BUTTRE. — John Chester Buttre was born in Auburn, N. V., June 10, 1821, and 
died at Ridgewood, N. J., December 2, J893. He was the son of William Puttie, 
b. in Perthshire, Scotland, August 9, 17S2, d. in New York City, October 2. 1864; 
and Mary Ann (Lathrop) Buttre, b. in Fairfield, Herkimer County, N. Y., April 2, 
1S00, d. in Ridgewood, N. J., May 7, 1882. 

Mr. Buttre was one of the oldest and most widely known of the publishers, 
engravers, and plate-printers in America. He commenced business in Auburn in 
1S3S, and removed to New York in 1841, being of late years at 32 Cortlandt Street. 
He published The American Portrait Gallery, of which there have been several 
editions issued, and his daughter, Lillian C. Buttre, assisted him in the work. The 
biographical sketches are cleverly told, and therefore possess an abiding interest. 
He was a general engraver and plate-printer, and for many years has made a spe- 
cialty of engraving fine portraits on steel, several being for members of this Society. 

The old Diploma plate, engraved on copper by J. J. Le Veau, of Paris (France), 
for the Society of the Cincinnati in the last century, was found to be very badly 
corroded, in May, 1888, and Mr. Buttre, from motives of patriotis-m, devoted many 
clays to its restoration, thereby meriting the thanks of the General Society of the 
Cincinnati at its Triennial Meeting in 1890. 

Mr. Buttre was a coi responding member of the New York Genealogical and 
Biographical Society, and also a corresponding member of the Rhode Island Histor- 
ical Society. 11. t. d.

Moore. — Charles B. Moore, one of the early members of the New York Genea- 
logical and Biographical Society, for many years a Trustee and a member of the 
Publication Committee, and since 1S70 the chairman of the Committee on Biograph- 
ical Bibliography, died at his residence in this city on Monday, December ir, 1893. 
An extended sketch of Mr. Moore's life will appear in the next number of The 


Eliot. — The early years of John Eliot, " Apostle to the Indians," were passed in 
Widford, County of Hertford ; in Nazeing, County of Essex , at Little Baddow in 
the same county; and at Jesus College, Cambridge University. 

In the Parish Register of the Church of St. John Baptist at Widford, his baptism 
is thus recorded : "John Elliott the sonne of Bennett Elliott was baptized the fyfte 
daye of Augusle in the yeare of o* Lord God, 1604." 

The baptism of his sister Sarah in 1599, his brother Phillip in 1602, and his brother 
Jacob in 1606 are also recorded in this Parish Register. 

Among the marriages is this : Bennett Eliot and Letteye Aggar were married the 
30th of October, 1598. 

Subsequent to 1606 and prior to 1610 the family doubtless removed to Nazeing, 
as in the Parish Register of the Church of All Saints in that Parish are recorded the 
baptisms of Lydia in 1610, of Francis in 1615, and of Mary in 1620. The Register 
also shows that in the churchyard there are the graves, unmarked and unknown, of 
Letteye Eliot, who died in 1620, and Bennet Eliot, who died in 1621 — the fatherand 
mother of the " Apostle." 

In the library of Jesus College, Cambridge University, is a copy of the Indian 
Bible presented by John Eliot, as his inscription on the fly-sheet shows. This price- 
less volume has been but recently discovered. 

Widford is about twenty-five miles north from London, and four and one-half 
miles east from Ware. It contains about 500 inhabitants, and probably presents 
about the same appearance as when John Eliot was born there. The Church of St. 
John Baptist is an ancient structure, built no one can tell when and how. Parts of 
it are probably about 8oo years old, dating from the days of the Normans. Venerable 
in appearance, it looks as if it had stood for ages and would continue for centuries 
undilapidated. The tower, built at a later date than the main building, but still 
not far from 500 years old, contains a peal of six bells of exceptional sweetness and 
purity. Some of them are of great antiquity. 

Through the kindness of the Rector, the Rev. John Traviss Lockwood, arrange- 
ments have been made to erect a stained-glass window to John Eliot's memory. Mr. 
Lockwood has kindly consented that the ehancel window, the most desirable one in 
the church, may be used for this purpose. Messrs. Burlinson & Grylls, 23 Newman 
Street, London, are preparing a design, a copy of which will soon be received. It 
will be an appropriate and beautiful memorial. The Rector of the church is thoroughly 
acquainted with this kind of work, and will give it his unremitting attention. The 
inscription will be : To the Glory of God and in Pious Remembrance of John Eliot, 
A.B., Cantab., called "The Apostle to the Indians," who was Baptized in this 
Church, August 5, 1604; Emigrated to New England A.D., 1631 ; and Died in Rox- 
bury, Massachusetts, May 21, 1690. This window was erected by his descendants. 
A.D. 1S93 (or [894). " The Righteous shall be in Everlasting Remembrance.'" 

The cost will be about $ 1,000. Contributions of $1 and upwards from every one 
who claims descent from John Eliot, and from those who have married descendants, 
are solicited, and if sent to the undersigned, 48 West 36th Street, N. V., will be 
promptly acknowledged. 


It is earnestly desired to procure if possible for the "Old Senate House " at

The Letter Y in the Holland Language. — I doubt that Mr. Banta is 
precise in saying that the letter Y occurs in proper names. Leiden has ti, and Leiden 
is a proper name. Perhaps it would be exactly correct to say that y occurs in some 
family names. Such names have arbitrary spelling, and it is customary for other 
persons to follow the usage of the family which bears the name. I do not see why 
Van Speik, with ei, is not the correct form, unless it be a family name, of a family 
which persisls in the use of ey. According to Sewell, the ei or ey would have the 
sound of the English word " eye." (See " Notes and Queries " in Record for Octo-

The German Allied Troops in the North American War oe Independ- 
ence, 1 77<>-i 783. Translated and abridged from the German of Max Von Eelking 
by J. G. Rosengarten. Joel Munsell's Sons, Albany, N. V., 1893. Sq. 8vo, boards. 

More than a century after the close of the War of Independence, the learned 
translator has laid before the English reading public Van Eelking's work, written 

1894-] Book Notices. ac 

thirty years ago, in which (he author seeks to reverse the verdict of history and the 
judgment of mankind, and to prove that tardy history had not done justice to these 
troops ; and " to protect and restore the good name and credit of the German 
soldiers, ruthlessly attacked on all sides for their share in the American Revolu- 
tionary War." His effort on behalf of his countrymen engaged in that momentous 
straggle is as patriotic as it is difficult, as the very name of Hessian has become the 
synonym of all that is sordid and mercenary. To make out his case and to establish 
that these German troops, recruited from a number of the small principalities, but 
usually known and designated as Hessians for the reason that the largest lines came 
from I Iesse-Cassel, were not mere 'hireling-," and that they marched willingly as 
volunteers and under orders, the author has been diligent in his researches and has 
drawn largely on contemporary journals, letters, reports, and newspapers to supply 
the absence of the official archives closed to the historical student. He has thus 
added much to the material of history and thrown an interesting side light on events 
of great moment in the history of the world. 

That they were only volunteers in a cause rightful to them, the pages of the book 
do not sustain. We are told of the large and ever-increasing bounties paid in gold 
and offers of land. Some came with intent to remain and settle in a new and fruitful 
land, and others, as their subsequent acts show, to prey upon and plunder the people 
and country they hoped to subjugate, and to divide among themselves the rich spoils 
of war. Musketeer Dohla (pp. 190-191) says of the plunder of Hackensack : " We 
gathered fine plunder, gold and silver watches, silver forks and spoons, furniture, 
good clothes, fine English linen, silk stockings, gloves, and carats, with other silk, 
woolen and cotton clothing." He inventories his ''own booty," among which are 
" two silver watches, three necklackes of silver, four woman's shirts, one silver table- 
spoon, one silver teaspoon, five Spanish dollars, and six York shillings." 

How willingly they went as volunteers is seen (pp. 101-102), when the Bayreuth 
regiment, 600 strong, on the river Main, broke out in open revolt and refused to 
march until, " after sharp firing," " the Grenadier Company charged on the scattered 
men " and brought them back "with a loss of 40 men in the Bayreuth regiment." 
After this kind of persuasion the men went forward willingly. 

No doubt they went under orders, as the rulers of these little principalities had 
made hard bargains with the English government to replenish their exhausted ex- 
chequers. The dead as well as the living were to be paid for, and " three wounded 
men were to count as one dead man." It is estimated the cost to the English Gov- 
ernment was ^850,000 for these soldiers annually, and the subsidies were to continue 
for two years after the close of the war. It is estimated 27,166 of these troops 
were sent to America, of which number 11,853 were lost. 

Interesting matter is given relating to the battle of Trenton. Rail appears to be 
made the scapegoat. He is charged with being inefficient and careiess ami with 
carousing the night before the battle. His fault appears to have been in underesti- 
mating the rebels. He " hoped Washington himself would come over (the Delaware) 
that he might make him prisoner." Gen. Washington treated his prisoners kindly 
and wanted the German officers to dine with him. One of them in his diary thus 
describes the Commander-in-Chief : " His countenance is not that of a great hero, 
hi* eyes have no fire, but a friendly smile, when he speaks, inspires love and affec- 
tion. He is a courtly man of fine aspect, polished and somewhat restrained ; says 
little, has a shrewd look, is of middle height and a good figure " (p. 70'. 

We regret the translator has not given us the book in its entirety, thus avoiding 
some confusion in dates and presenting a more complete picture of events. The book 
is printed on good paper and in large, clear type, making it very satisfactory and 
pleasant to the reader. C. L. L. 

The Moulton Family : Some Descendants of John Moulton and William 
Moulton, <>t" Hampton, N. H., 1592-1892. Compiled by Augustus E. Moulton. 
Sq. 8vo, cloth, pp. 99. 

The Moulton family (the name being variously spelled Mullon, Muleton, Molton, 
Moleton, Moulson, and Moulton) is of English origin, the earliest member of it of 
whom any mention is made being "Thomas Multon, or He Multon, stated in the 
Domesday Book to have been put in possession of an estate called Galeshore." Seven 
of the name are found among the earliest settlers of this country, one, Thomas, being 
of Jamestown, Va. , and the others of Massachusetts, namely, Robert and lames, of 
Salem ; Thomas, of Charlestown ; and Thomas, John, and William, of Newbury. 

z|_6 Book Notices. [Jan.. 

The three latter removed to Hampton, N. IT., where John and William remained, 
Thomas subsequently settling in York, Me. The compiler — himself a descendant of 
William — traces down for seven or eight generations the descendants of John and 
William, who are supposed to have been brothers. The book is neatly printed and 
bound, and contains a portrait of the compiler. It loses much of its value, however, 
by not having an index of the names of those who intermarried with the Moultons.

The title which appears above is properly comprehensive. Genealogies should 
be indicated, first, by the lettering on the back of the volume. Here it is simply 
"Cole Genealogies, Frank T. Cole," which is enough to let the searcher know if he 
is interested in the contents, and that it is not Dr. David Cole's book on the Kool, 
Cool, or Cole family. And, second (as genealogies are not made for continuous read- 
ing), by the index, which is the important feature — the more full and accurate the 
belter ; and, as in this volume, the surname should be divided up under the Christian 
names, and so prevent the searcher being detained to look at a dozen where there 
may be but one who bears the name he seeks. It is more work, as any one knows 
who has done any indexing, but one works not only for all but for all time, and the 
saving of time in the end is immense. r. h. G. 

Journal of Colonel George Washington, Commanding a Detachment

With an Appendix. Edited, with notes, by J. M. Toner, M.D. Albany, N. V. : 
Joel Munsell's Sons. 1893. Sq. Svo., boards* pp. 273. 

Of making books about Washington there seems to be no end, but much reading 
of them is never a weariness to the flesh. The volume before us is no exception to 
this rule. The Journal which is here given has a singular history. Kept by Wash- 
ington in the spring and early summer of 1754, on n ' s march from Alexandria to the 
Ohio, it fell into the hands of the French, probably at the battle of the ('.rand 
Meadows in that year. A French translation of it was published in Paris in 1756. 
and this version is a retranslation from the French into English. Of the whereabouts 
of the original, nothing is now known. While it is exceedingly interesting, we ques- 
tion its value historically, as the French version was undoubtedly much garbled. The 
histoiical and biographical notes by the editor are full and very valuable. T. G. E. 

A Genealogical Record of Mathew Pratt of Weymouth, Massachu-

Boston, Mass., 1890. 

The author of this particularly well-printed octavo volume, who is a member of 
the New England Historic Genealogical Society, has performed his labor of love in a 
highly creditable manner. To prepare a family history covering a peri d of two 
hundred and sixty-six years and to do it thoroughly, as Mr. Pratt has done, is no 
slight labor. He was greatly aided in his work by Judge Granville Pratt, who 
devoted his leisure hours for many years to the preparation of a family genealogy, 
and who, on learning that the present volume was in progress with prospect of an 
early publication, generously contributed the result of his own labors to the common 
fund of family history. We may add that much valuable information relating to 
the Pratt families of England may be found in Chapman's Genealogy of the Pratls of 
Connecticut, who were descendants of William Pratt of Saybrook. w.

Revolution, General Nathaniel Greene ; a leading spirit of the Confederacy in the late 
War of the Rebellion, General Joseph E.Johnston ; and one of the strongest char- 
acters on the side of the Union in the same war, General George II. Thomas. Each 
of these men was cast in a large mould, and each has in his life and career some- 
thing worthy of emulation. The volumes are well printed, tastefully bound, and 
of a convenient size, and each contains a portrait and several maps. T. G. E.

We do not often receive genealogical publications from the extreme South, but 
New England stock takes pride in its ancestry which distance does not quench. The 
author quotes from "The Rambler'': '' He that wishes to be counted among the 
benefactors of posterity must add by his own toil to the acquisitions of his ancestry." 
These words deserve to be engraved and remembered. The day has gone by when 
self-respecting men may boast ignorance of those who bore their blood. Knowledge 
of the past should inspire the desire to keep up the standard and, if possible, raise it. 
Ignorance of the past marks one as unworthy to be remembered in the future.

History of the Town of Rochester, New Hampshire, from 1722 to 1S90. 
By Franklin McDuffie, A.M. Edited and revised by Sylvanus Hayward. 2 vols., 
8vo, Manchester, 1892. 

Nearly thirty years ago Mr. McDuffie began a series of valuable historical sketches 
that appeared during subsequent years in the columns of the Rochester Courier. His 
untimely death left the work unfortunately incomplete, and his father, thinking a 
history of Rochester would be a more enduring monument for his son than marble or 
granite, induced Mr. Hayward to take up the unfinished work. This he has done 
with good judgment, producing two octavo volumes which are handsomely illustrated 
with numerous steel portraits, photographic views, maps, and fac-similes of ancient 
documents. A carefully prepared and exhaustive index, extending to sixty pages, 
enhances the value of this excellent historical work. w.

This beautiful and elaborate chart, only fifty copies of which were printed (the

These reprints are creditable as far as they go, being probably preliminary to

may have been a nickname, but some find it in the Huguenot French De L'Hotel. 
The names Lee, Lea, Leigh, Lye, Leya, Lyra, Leighe, Lyhe, and Lygh, are said to 
be derived from the Saxon Lay or Leah, meaning " the pasture or place."

This handsome octavo volume contains brief sketches of about one hundred of 
the leading clubs of New York, and some twenty-five thousand names alphabetically 
arranged. Among the latter we observe instances of several names introduced of 
deceased persons, and many omitted who should have been mentioned. These. 
however, will doubtless be corrected in future editions, as this useful compilation will 
be welcomed by many club men and others. We cannot too highly commend its

This volume contains brief genealogies of three New England families in the

it has material which will be of value to the future historian of these families. The 
mechanical execution of the book is good and reflects credit upon the publisher.

Vol. XXV. NEW YORK, APRIL, 1894. No. 2. 


By his Daughter, Miss Kate A. Mott. 

Major-General Gershom Mott of New Jersey traced his descent 
from the immigrant from Essex, England, the first Adam Mott* of Hemp- 
stead, L. I., through Adam's son Gershom, who was born in Hempstead 
in 1663. 

The name Mott, or De la Motte, is French, and not uncommon. De 
la Motte Fenelon was the great Archbishop of Cambrai. It is not, how- 
ever, proposed here to attempt to trace the European ancestry of the 
immigrant Adam Mott. But it may be noted that the Mott family had 
been prominent in the county of Essex, England, for several centuries, 
and doubtless came originally from France, perhaps with William the 
Conqueror. After a time the French prefix had been usually abandoned, 
although De Motte or De la Motte is still retained in some families both 
in this country and in England. The Motts of Essex, England, owned 
many manors, and the main line can be traced for five hundred years. 
The crest of the Essex Motts is a star with eight points on a crown, and 
a Latin motto which in English reads : " Speed, strength, truth, "f The 
Motts of Essex overflowed into adjoining counties, and an earlier Adam 
Mott came from the adjacent county of Cambridge to Boston, then very 
recently founded, several years before the Adam Mott of Essex was in 
New Amsterdam. 

According to the records of the Dutch Church of New Amsterdam, 
Adam Mott of Essex, England, was married in New Amsterdam on the 
28th July, 1647, to Jane Hulet of Buckingham, England. The record 
shows that neither had been previously married. About a year before 
this date, on the 23d April, 1646, the Dutch Government of New Nether- 
lands granted to Adam Mott twenty-five morgans of land on Mespath Kill 
(Newtown Creek). The Albany records (iv., pages 187-89-90) also 
mention Adam Mott as witness in the court in New Amsterdam on the 
23d October, 1645, and even earlier than this, on the 6th June and 10th

ro Major-General Gershom Mott, of New Jersey. [April, 

May, 1644. He apparently remained in New Amsterdam for several 
years, for according to the same church records his infant son Adam was 
baptized on the 14th November, 1649, tne sponsors being Thomas Hall, 
Oloff Stevenson Van Cortlandt, and Elsie Miiytiens (Alice Newton, wife 
of Captain Bryan Newton). These were among the most respectable 
people of the infant city, then numbering perhaps one thousand souls. 
James, the second son of Adam, was baptized on the 15th October, 1651, 
the sponsors being Rebecca Cornell, who subsequently married George 
Wolsey ; Bryan Newton, and Carel Ver Brugge (Charles Bridges), who 
married Sarah Cornell, sister of Rebecca and widow of Thomas Willett, 
and mother of Colonel Thomas Willett, of Flushing.* 

It has been sometimes assumed that this Adam Mott, of New 
Amsterdam in 1644-52, was the son of the earlier Adam Mott who 
came to Boston from Cambridge, England, in 1635, in the ship Defence, 
with his family, including a son Adam, then twelve years old. This 
Adam Mott of Cambridge, who was in Boston in 1635, moved to Hing- 
ham about 1636, and subsequently to Portsmouth, R. I.; and his son 
Adam, who married Mary Lott, may be traced in Portsmouth until his 
death, about 1673,1 and must not be confounded with the Adam Mott 
of Hempstead who married Jane Hulet in New Amsterdam in 1647. 

Soon after the birth of his second son, James, Adam Mott appears to 
have moved from New Amsterdam toward Hempstead on Long Island. 
The first entry on the first page of Book A of the Hempstead Records, 
March 17, 1657, certifies that Adam Mott was chosen one of the towns- 
men for that year. His descendants, as well as the Hulets or Hewletts, 
have been prominent in Hempstead and the neighboring towns down to 
the present day, nearly two hundred and fifty years. 

Jane Hulet, 1 the first wife of the immigrant Adam, 1 died after bear- 
ing him eight children, the youngest of whom was Gershom, 2 born about 
1663. Adam Mott * subsequently married Elizabeth Richbell, 2 one of 
the daughters of John Richbell, 1 the first patentee of what is now the 
town of Mamaroneck. Elizabeth Richbell 2 bore him five children, to one 
of whom he gave the name of Adam, although his eldest son Adam was 
still living ; and thus in his will, offered for probate in 1689, he speaks of 
his eldest son Adam and of his youngest son Adam. 

Elizabeth Richbell's son, William Mott, 3 born in 1674, was ancestor 
of the celebrated surgeon, Valentine Mott, of New York. Richbell 
Mott, 3 the eldest of the Richbell children, born in 1668, was ancestor of 
several persons of prominence. One of his granddaughters, Margaret, 
married in 1749 Melancthon Smith, a statesman of note in his day, whose 
grandson, Admiral Melancthon Smith o{ the United States Navy, died in 
the summer of 1893. Jordan L. Mott, a prominent man in New York 
during the latter half of the present century, was descended from the first 
Adam Mott of Hempstead, through Joseph, the fifth son of his first 
wife, Jane Hulet. 

Gershom Mott, 2 son of the immigrant Adam Mott and Jane Hulet, 
removed in early manhood to Monmouth County, New Jersey, where he 
became prominent. He is first named in the Monmouth records about 
1685. He was High Sheriff of the county in 1697-98, and member of 
the Provincial Assembly (Archives, N. J.) in 1707, 1708, 1709, 1710,

and 1 713. He was expelled from the Assembly with others for refusing 
to vote for the Cornbury faction in 17 10. 

In 1695 Gershom Mott 2 married Catherine Bowne,* a daughter of 
Captain John Bowne (Salter's Early Settlers of Ocean and Monmouth 
Counties), whose father, William Bowne, first settled in Monmouth 
County about 1636 and died there in 1677. John Bowne was granted 
forty acres of land at Jefferies Creek. He is mentioned in the first Mon- 
mouth patents ; paid for his portion of land bought of the Indians, and 
was member of the Provincial Assembly, 1703. 

Gfrshom Mott 2 is mentioned as one of the heirs of Captain Bowne. 
His cattle-mark is recorded February 16, 1687, subsequently transferred 
to his son James. Gershom Mott 2 describes himself in will, dated 
February 15, 1730, in the reign of George III., as "Gershom Mott, 
gentleman, of Middletown, Monmouth County." This will was probated 
March 30, 1733, and is on file in the office of the Secretary of State 
of New Jersey. 

The following children of the first Gershom Mott ' are named in his 
family Bible : 

1. John, 3 born December 1, 1697. 

2. William, 3 born November 9, 1699. 

3. Gershom, 3 born May 15, 1702. 

4. Asher, 3 born June 27, 1704. 

5. James, 3 born April 5, 1707. 

6. Huldah, 3 born October 31, 1709. 

William Mott, 3 born November 9, 1699, second son of Gershom 2 and 
Catherine (Bowne) Mott, was ancestor of the General. I can find little 
in regard to him. He was member of the Provincial Assembly in 1742 
(Archives). He married (family Bible) Margaret Hartshorne, a 
descendant of Richard Hartshorne (Salter's Monmouth County), whose 
father, William Hartshorne, was of Leicestershire, Fngland. Richard 
Hartshorne ' was born there October 24, 1641, and married Margaret 
Carr, November 29, 1670. Their children were : f 

1 . Robert. 

2. Hugh. 

3. Thomas. 

4. Mary. 

5. William, 2 born January 22, 1679. 

6. Richard. 

7. Katherine. 

8. Hugh. 

William Hartshorne's 2 children were Richard 3 and Margaret, 3 who 
married William Mott. 3 

Richard Hartshorne, 1 the immigrant above named, came to this 
country September 16, 1669 ; located at the Highlands, Monmouth 
County, N. J.; was a Quaker of good repute ; was Town Clerk of Middle- 
town 1675 an< 3 1676, member of Provincial Assembly 1683, 1686, 1698, 
and 1699 ; Speaker of Assembly 1686 ; made a deed of gift of his High- 
land property to his son William 2 ; resided at Sandy Hook in a house now 
standing next to the Baptist parsonage and the oldest in the county.

4. Margaret, 6 born October 29, 1776, married Alexander Chambers. 

5. Asher, 6 born April 24, 1778. 

Captain John Mott, son of William and Margaret ( Hartshorne) 
Mott and grandfather of General Gershom Mott, was born, as above stated, 
on the 1 8th January, 1734, and was therefore twenty-one years old when 
the French and Indian War broke out and Washington made his first 
campaign at the age of twenty-two as Aid to Braddock in 1775, and 
was twenty-five years old when Wolfe fell on the Plains of Abraham on 
the 13th September, 1759. ^ * s a tradition in the family that in this war 
with the French he served in the British Army and fought before Quebec. 

When, however, the battle of Lexington, in April, 1775, opened the 
American Revolution, John Mott was living on the farm above Trenton 
now occupied by the New Jersey Hospital for the Insane. He also 
owned a mill, and took an active part in all public affairs, and was among 
the first to join in armed resistance to British aggression. 

It may be recalled that in the summer of 1775 General Montgomery 
conducted an army from New York into Lower Canada, captured Mon- 
treal, and was killed before Quebec on the 31st of December, 1775. 
General Sullivan succeeded Montgomery, and John Mott is supposed to 
have been among his soldiers, having either gone with Montgomery, or 
perhaps having joined the reinforcements which followed Montgomery. 
But this attack upon Canada was abandoned in the spring or early sum- 
mer of 1776. The Canadians proved not to be in sympathy with the 
American colonists. 

In the official records of the local military organizations of New Jersey 
John Mott is named on 9th February, 1776, as First Lieutenant in Captain 
Patterson's Company in the Third Battalion,! but it does not appear whether 
this was his first or second or third term of service. A little before this,

1894-] ^Major-General Ger shorn Molt, of New Jersey. n 

on the 8th of December, 1775, the First and Second New Jersey Battalions 
had been ordered to New York. (Stryker, p. 15.) On the 3d'of May the 
Second and Third Battalions went up the Hudson in sloops, and thence to 
Ticonderoga (Stryker) as reinforcements of General Sullivan, who, after 
the retreat of the British from Boston on the 17th of March, 1776, had taken 
command of the army which had retreated from Quebec. As Lieutenant 
John Mott was in the Third Battalion he was probably in this expedition. 
The New Jersey battalions were successively in Johnstown, German Flats, 
Fort Schuyler, Fort Dayton, and Ticonderoga and Fort Independence. 
They were chiefly engaged in preventing Indian incursions. But they all 
returned in time to take part in the campaign in New Jersey in the 
autumn and winter of 1776-77. 

The British fleets, it should be remembered, brought an army of thirty 
thousand men to Long Island in the summer of 1776, and defeated Wash- 
ington at Brooklyn on the 29th August. The Patriot army was driven out 
of New York in the middle of September; fought and was defeated at White 
Plains on the 28th of October; crossed the Hudson soon after, and was 
forced to continue the retreat through New Jersey during November, and 
reached Trenton on the 2d of December. These were the darkest days 
of the Revolution, and Washington soon after retreated across the Dela- 
ware River with the remains of his army. (Irving's Washington, vol. ii. 
chap, xlii.) 

But meantime a new army was being organized, new recruits were 
brought in, enlistments were made for longer terms or " for the war " in- 
stead of for the previous short dates, and Congress on the 12th of Decem- 
ber gave Washington full power relative to the army. Lieutenant Mott 
and his comrades under Sullivan had just returned from Ticonderoga. In 
the new organization of the New Jersey troops, John Mott was made 
captain of the Fifth Company in the Third Battalion (29th November, 
1776), and now the four New Jersey battalions constituted the "New 
Jersey Line" or Maxwell's Brigade. (Stryker, p. 41.) 

But here, near his old home, Captain Mott's local knowledge made him 
of great service as Washington's guide, in planning and conducting a new 
attack upon the British in Trenton. Other farmers of the neighborhood 
were also called in. On the 20th of December General Sullivan arrived 
with troops from near Morristown. On the 25th, in the night, General 
Washington recrossed the Delaware and marched on Trenton. Captain 
Mott in the darkness of the morning carried a fusee on his shoulder to 
light General Washington. The weather was stormy, and after they had 
marched about three miles the Captain said to General Sullivan that the 
priming powder in the muskets was becoming damp. Sullivan replied: 
"Well, boys, we must fight them with the bayonet." When Washington 
heard this he said : " Tell them to use the bayonet, and to penetrate the 
town, for the town must be taken ! I am resolved to take it ! " As is 
well known, he took the town and captured a thousand Hessian prisoners.* 

Captain John Mott can be traced duiing the remainder of the war in 
the "New Jersey Line" or Maxwell's Brigade. On the nth of Septem- 
ber, 1777, lri ey opened the battle of Brandywine and afterward encamped 
near Germantown and formed the reserve corps and left wing at the battle 
of Germantown. (Stryker, p. 42.) Maxwell's Brigade spent most of the 

*Stryker's History of the Battle of Trenton ; also Irving's Washington, ii. chap, 

ca Major-General Gershom Molt, of Neiv Jersey. [April, 

winter of 1777-78 at Valley Forge, where it may be hoped that Captain- 
John Mott got leave of absence to. visit his home near Trent n. On the 
28th of June, 1778, his command was in the left wing of the army at the 
battle of Monmouth. In consequence of the "massacre of Wyoming," 
an army under General Sullivan, of which Maxwell's Brigade formed a 
part, was sent up the valley of the Susquehanna in the spring of 1779 
into the settlements of the Seneca Indians, returning late in the autumn, 
and the New Jersey troops returned to their own State. They took a prom- 
inent part in the fight at Springfield, 23d June, 1780 (Stryker, p. 46), 
and Captain Mott retired from the army 26th September, 1780. But in 
the following year the quota of New Jersey troops had so run down that 
the legislature took vigorous action and appointed a recruiting officer in 
every county. Captain John Mott consented to serve in that capacity in 
Hunterdon County. 

Captain Mott turned his mind after the war to more peaceful ways, but 
served for a time as captain of militia, and at the mature age of fifty mar- 
ried, as above stated, 17th June, 1784, the widow of Captain Alexander of 
the British Navy. He and his wife are buried in the Quaker burial-ground 
in Trenton, at East Hanover and Montgomery Streets, whence it may be 
supposed that at the time of their death they belonged to the Society of 

The children of Captain John and Eleanor (Johnston) Mott as named 
in his family Bible, now in possession of his granddaughter, Eleanor Hines 
Abel of Providence, R. I., were: 

1. Gershom, 5 born July 12, 1785. 

2. William," born March 29, 1790. 

Gershom, 5 son of John 4 and Eleanor, was the father of the General. 
Gershom Mott 5 (the Judge) lived at Lambeiton, near Trenton. He 
was a prominent citizen, being collector of the port of Lamberton from 
1828 until his death in 1848, being reappointed by each President. He 
was appointed judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Burlington County 
October 31, 1833, and held that office at the time of his death. He was 
a prominent member of the Baptist Church, being a deacon of the First 
Baptist Church of Trenton for many years. He married, April 11, 181 1, 
Phcebe Rose Scudder, daughter of John Scudder (Croley's Ewi?ig Settlers, 
p. 220), a descendant of the Scudders of Ewing, and Mary Keen. This 
Mary (Keen) Scudder, grandmother of Major-General Gershom Mott, 
was one of the thirteen maidens who strewed flowers before General Wash- 
ington at a reception given him at Trenton on the 21st of April, 1789. 

Judge Gershom Mott, 5 father of General Gershom Mott, 6 died Octo- 
ber 14, 1848. The children of Judge Gershom 5 and Phcebe Rose (Scud- 
der) Mott, as given in his family Bible, now in possession of his grand- 
daughter, Kate A. Mott, were :

Gershom Mott 6 (the General), fifth child and second son of Judge 
Gershom and Phcebe Rose Mott, born April 7, 1822, at Lamberton, 
finished his education at the Trenton Academy. In 1836 he entered a 
store in New York. At the breaking out of the Mexican War he was 
appointed Second Lieutenant of the Tenth United States Infantry. He 
participated with credit in all the battles under General Scott, from Vera 
Cruz to the capture of the City of Mexico, and was mustered out of the 
service at the close of the war. He was appointed Collector of the Port of 
Lamberton in 1849, which office he held until appointed clerk, at Borden- 
town, of the Bordentown and Raritan Canal Company. In 1855 he was 
made teller of the Bordentown Banking Company, where he remained 
until 1861. 

When the first shot was fired on Sumter he volunteered in defence of 
the country, and was appointed Lieutenant-Colonel Fifth New Jersey Regi- 
ment, and was wounded in the arm at the battle of second Bull Run, 
August 29, 1862. He was promoted Colonel of the Sixth New Jersey 
Volunteers May 8, 1862. Was unanimously recommended by his supe- 
rior officers for promotion to Brigadier-General September 7, 1862. Was 
given command on return to duty, December 4, 1862, of the Second Bri- 
gade New Jersey Volunteers, and then of the Third Brigade, Second Di- 
vision, Third Army Corps. He was wounded in the hand May 3, 1863, 
at Chancellorsville. In May, 1864, General Mott was placed in command 
of the Second Division, Third Corps, and subsequently commanded the 
Third Division, Second Corps. He was brevetted Major-General Septem- 
ber 9, 1864, for taking the enemy's outpost and line and over one hun- 
dred men. He was wounded in the leg at Amelia Springs, April 6, 1865. 
After peace was restored, General Mott was given command of the Division 
of Provincial Corps. Upon its being mustered out, he was ordered to 
Washington and made a member of the Wirz Commission. November 22 
he was detailed as one of the committee to investigate the difficulties 
between the State of Massachusetts and the Austrian Government. While 
upon this commission he received his last promotion, December 1, 1865, 
dated from May 26, 1865, to full Major-General. 

Major-General Mott was the first volunteer officer to be brevetted 

r5 Dominie Laurent his Van Gaasbeek and his Descendants. [April, 

Major-General in the Army of the Potomac, there being only one other 
full Major-General from New Jersey. He resigned February 20, 1866, 
and was appointed Paymaster of the Camden and Amboy Railroad Com- 
pany. In 1867 he was tendered the appointment of the colonelcy of the 
Twenty-second United States Infantry, but declined to accept. In 1873 
he became a partner in the iron foundry under the name of Thompson 
and Mott. Governor Bedle appointed him Treasurer of the State, also 
Keeper of the New Jersey State Prison for five years. In 1873 Governor 
Parker appointed him Major-General of the National Guard of New Jer- 
sey, which rank he held at the time of his death. March 21, 1882, Gov- 
ernor Ludlow appointed him a member of the Riparian Commission. 
He was also director, for many years, of the Bordentown Banking Com- 
pany and the West Jersey and Atlantic Railroad Company, and was treas- 
urer of many small corporations. All the above positions he held at the 
time of his death, November 29, 18S4. He was also member of the 
Society of the Cincinnati, the Military Order of the Loyal Legion, and of 
many army societies. 

General Gershom Mott left but one child, the compiler of this brief 
account of his life and descent. And she desires to acknowledge here her 
many obligations for assistance in putting this narrative into shape, and 
for notes of the earlier history of the family, to her kinsman of the Mott 
blood, Mr. Thomas C. Cornell, whose interesting book of his own Mott 
ancestors brings in also the ancestors of General Gershom Mott.

influence, and a member of the Third United States Congress, 1793 to 
1795. ^ lS P r i vate papers were discovered, stored in a loft, in the year 
1 886. From them it appears that he was on intimate terms with several 
prominent men of his time, including Aaron Burr, Alexander Hamilton, 
and others. He was captain in the Revolutionary Army, and was 
detailed with his company to protect the property of the Patriots from the 
depredations of the Tories. For this purpose he was, in the year 1776, 
stationed at Livingston Manor, where two companies were under his com- 
mand. He was afterwards promoted to major. (Family 17.)

was located on the northwest corner of Clinton Avenue and John Street, 
Kingston, N. Y. In connection with his business he ran a sloop between 
Rondout and New York, the arrival and departure of which was at that 
time as great an event as is that of a European steamer to-day, the people 
gathering to welcome and greet its arrival. His wife, Ariaantje, was con- 
sidered very beautiful, and was quite a belle in her day. Her beauty 
attracted the attention of General Washington during his visit to Kings- 
ton, and he sought an introduction at a ball given in his honor. She 
was familiarly called the "Rose-bud." (Family 20.)

1894.] Ancestry of Grace Kaye, Wife of Sir Richard Salionstali. jc 



By A. H. Mickle Saltonstall. 

As the ancestress of men who for four successive generations were 
conspicuous for the prominent part taken by them in the government of 
Massachusetts Bay Colony, and that of her sister colony, Connecticut, 
as well as for their patriotic efforts to protect and defend the rights and 
liberties of the colonists under their respective charters, Grace Kaye, the 
wife of Sir Richard Saltonstall, is of no small interest, if for nothing else 
than for the purpose of speculating upon how far the law of heredity was 
instrumental in her case in effecting and influencing the characteristic 
traits of her descendants, who, in the struggle beginning with the found- 
ing of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and ending in the establish- 
ing of American Independence, were pre-eminent in furthering the one, 
and perpetuating the other by services both legislative and military. The 
first of her paternal line of whom we have authentic record is William 
Kaye, vive 28 Edward I. In 1375 his grandson Laurence Kaye was 
designated " of Woodsome, County York," and in this manner were they 
known for more than three hundred years. Fourth in descent from this 
Laurence was George Kaye, who married Margaret, daughter of James 
Radcliffe of Langley, County Lancaster, a family of ancient lineage. In 
1 5 17 their son, Arthur Kaye, married Beatrice, daughter of Matthew 
Wentworth of Bretton, County York. The issue of this marriage, John 
Kaye, vive 1585, married Dorothy, daughter of Robert Mauleverer of 
Wodersham, County York, and his wife Alice, daughter of Sir Ninian 
Maikenfield and his wife, Dorothy Gascoigne. By this marriage the 
family became allied to the most ancient and noble blood in England 
{vide Chart). Robert Kaye, vive 16 12, son of the above John, married 
Ann, daughter of John Flower of Whiteswell, County Rutland, and it was 
their daughter Grace who married, as his first wife and mother of all his 
children, Sir Richard Saltonstall of Huntwick, born 1586, son of Samuel 
Saltonstall of Rooks and Huntwick, England, by his first wife Ann, 
daughter of John Ramsden of Longley Hall, County York, who was 
eighth in descent from Thomas de Saltonstall of the West Riding in 
Yorkshire, who, in 1343, granted moieties of his estate to his sons John 
and Richard. 

On the 19th of March, 1627, a company of six gentlemen purchased 
Massachusetts Bay from the Plymouth Company, and Sir Richard 
Saltonstall, shortly after, became one of their associates. 

After Sir Henry Rosewell and Sir John Young, two of the original pur- 
chasers, his name appears next among the associates in the charter granted 
by Charles I., May 4, 1628. Bond, in his History of Water town, says 
that " his name almost invariably stands at the head of the Assistants 
on the records of the Company." When the proposition of Governor 
Cradock to transfer the government of the Company from England to the 
Colony was to be argued at a General Court of the Company on the 29th 
of August, 1629, Sir Richard was named first of those who were desig- 
nated to advocate the transfer. " At a General Court held in London,

1894-] Genealogical Notes on the Quackenbos Family. ^j 

England, December 1, 1629, the Company appointed five 'Undertakers,' 
among those about to go over, of whom Sir Richard Saltonstall was 
named next after the Governor." Early in April, 1630, Sir Richard, 
with his family and others of the Company, embarked at Yarmouth, Eng- 
land, on the Arabella, and reached Salem, Mass., June 12, 1630. On 
arriving at Charlestown, after leaving Salem, " this Company divided into 
two portions — one of which, with Sir Richard Saltonstall as their leader, 
went to plant Watertown." He some time after became, with Viscount 
Say and Seal, Lord Brooke, and others, a patentee of Connecticut ; and 
remained always extremely solicitous of the Colony's welfare. When, 
therefore, on January 1, 1708, his great-grandson Gurdon Saltonstall was 
elected to the Governorship of the Colony, it was a coincidence remark- 
ably appropriate ; serving likewise as an exemplification of the pangenetic 
hypothesis — as certain characteristic qualities and tendencies, begotten of 
a line of ancestors born to be rulers in the land, were in him repeated 
and evinced — a heritage descending to him through his ancestress Grace

go Ten Brook Family Bible. [April, 


Contributed by Victor H. Paltsits of the Lenox Library. 

It is difficult to imagine what vast genealogical material lies buried 
in old Bibles. This sacred volume was long ago made the receptacle of 
family records. Its use as such was not inappropriate. The family, 
making constant use of the household Bible, would ever have before it 
the record of its departed forefathers, and point with pride to those dead 
who had reached distinction or had lived a faithful and an honorable 

Many of these relics of the past lie hidden on library shelves, seldom 
to be disturbed from their repose, except indeed to receive their occa- 
sional or, it may be, their long-needed dusting. Many, no doubt, rest in 
the family cupboard, little used and less appreciated, until they are 
turned over with other " rubbish " to the junk dealer, and in turn by 
him sold to the paper-mill to be ground into pulp. Thus are many of 
the important family chronicles either kept from the genealogist or for- 
ever destroyed and lost. 

The Lenox Library contains the largest collection of Bibles in Amer- 
ica, if not the largest in the world. By the bequest of the "Robert 
L. Stuart Collection," the number of Bibles gathered by Mr. James 
Lenox, the founder, was considerably augmented. It is from a Stuart 
copy* that the following family record is taken. It is bound in two 
volumes. At the end of the second volume is a list of subscribers' 
names which contains those of Henry Ten Brook and John Ten Brook 
among the subscribers from " New York." The genealogy is written on 
the verso of the second leaf of signature LI of the Apocrypha, being that 
immediately preceding the New Testament title-page. The writing 
appears to be mostly, if not entirely, in the hand of one and the same

According to O'Callaghan this is the first hot-pressed edition of the Bible printed 
in America, and was issued originally in forty numbers, commencing June, 1796, at 
fifty cents a number. The division into volumes is therefore altogether arbitrary, 
and some copies have a titlepage to vol. ii. The text is that of the Cambridge 
edition published by John Baskerville, and is without notes of any kind.

Steel. He served in the Revolutionary Army while still under age. 

He was married three times. His first wife has been vaguely men-

baptized at Schenectady, Oct. 2, 1779, son of Johan Schurman and 
Catarina Merlelie. 

John's second wife was a Miss Leonard. His third wife, married about 
1824, was Catharine Scott, widow of Benjamin Loder. 

The name of John Schaneman, or Schuneman, appears as a private in 
the 4th company, Capt. John A. Whitbeek, nthN. Y. Regiment, Albany, 
Col. Anthony Van Bergen. The regiment seems to have been in some 
way identified with Coxsackie and Groot Imbogt. (N. Y. State Ar- 
chives: N. Y. in the Revolution, pp. 270, 463, 464.)

Proceedings of the Society. 




The annual meeting was held on the evening of Friday, January 12th, when Dr. 
Samuel S. Purple, Gen. James Grant Wilson, and Mr. Richard H. Greene were 
elected trustees of the Society, to serve for the ensuing three years. After the 
election, an interesting and scholarly address on "' The Apostle Eliot and his Indian 
Villages," was delivered by the Rev. Edward G. Porter, of Dorchester, Mass. In- 
connection with the address a number of photographs were shown, and also a copy 
of " Eliot's Indian Bible," and his " Indian Grammar." At the meeting of Febru- 
ary gth, Dr. Titus TVIunson Coan, a native and long a resident of the Sandwich 
Islands, gave a pleasant and instructive talk on " Hawaii and the Hawaiians ; " and 
on March gth, General James Grant Wilson read a well-written paper on "Gen. 
John A. Dix." 

The following have been recently elected members of the Society : Theodore 
Sutro, Henry G. Trevor, Miss Lucy D. Akerly, Dr. M. L. Bird, Alexander J. 
Reid, L. Coleman Williams, John T. Sill, William A. Kissam, George W. Cocks,

Whitfield, and Nathaniel A. Boynton. 


On the evening of the 27th of February, 1869, seven gentlemen met at the house 
of Dr. David Parsons Holton in New York City, and organized the New York 
Genealogical and Biographical Society. A certificate of incorporation was filed on 

qa Notes and Queries. [April, 

the 16th of March following, and meetings were held at the residence of Dr. William 
Frederick Holcombe until the 17th of July, when permanent quarters were obtained 
in Mott Memorial Hall, 64 Madison Avenue. Here the Society remained until the 
1st of May, 188S, when it removed temporarily to the Berkeley Lyceum Building, 
No. 19 West Forty-fourth Street. On the 1st of January, 1S90, it took possession 
of its present rooms at No. 23 West Forty-fourth Street, where, with a large and 
valuable collection of books on genealogy, biography, and history, a constantly 
increasing list of life and resident members, and an invested building fund of over 
twenty-three thousand dollars, it is doing a useful and important work in the 

On Tuesday, February 27, 1894. it completed the twenty-fifth year of its 
existence, and the event was celebrated in an interesting and appropriate manner. 
In the afternoon a reception was held in the library, the room adjoining being also 
thrown open through the courtesy of the members of the Women's University Club. 
The committee having charge of the reception, and to whose faithful and energetic 
labor the pleasure and success of the occasion is due, was composed of the following 
ladies : Miss Elizabeth Clarkson Jay, Chairman, Miss Lucy D. Akerly, Mrs. Cath- 
erine R. Baetjer, Mrs. Charles Avery Doremus, Mrs. Cornelia C. J. Dyer, Mrs. 
Ferdinand P. Earle, Mrs. Julia Ward Howe, Mrs. Henry Herrman, Mrs. James M. 
Lawton, Mrs. De Witt Clinton Mather, Miss Margaret Morris Norwood, Mrs. 
Thomas J. Owen, Miss Mary Close Purple, Mrs. Sylvanus Reed, Mrs. John Stanton, 
Mrs. Martha B. Stevens, Miss Bessie Thayer Sypher, Mrs. Gamaliel C. St. John, 
Mrs. Lucas E. Schoonmaker, Mrs. Howard Townsend, Miss Mary Mildred Williams, 
Mrs. Ellen Hardin Walworth, Mrs. William Hopkins Young and Mrs. Katherine di 

In the evening a meeting was held in the Berkeley Lyceum Theatre which was 
largely attended. After a prayer by the Rev. Dr. Talbot W. Chambers, senior pastor 
of the Collegiate Reformed Church, Dr. Samuel S. Purple, the first Vice-President, 
gave a historical sketch of the Society. A letter from Dr. Henry R. Stiles, the first 
President of the Society, who is now living in London. England, was read by Mr. 
Richard H. Greene, the Secretary of the Celebration Committee, and short speeches 
were made by ex-Presidents Edward F. de Lancey, General George S. Greene and 
Henry T. Drowne. 

An eloquent address followed from Judge Alphonzo T. Clearwater of Kingston, 
N. Y., on " The Debt we owe to our Dutch and Huguenot Ancestors," after which 
the Anniversary Address was delivered by General Augustus W. Greely, who-e 
exploits in Arctic exploration have made his name known and honored throughout the 
scientific world. The exercises were enlivened by music from Stub's orchestra. 
Handsomely printed invitations (for the beauty and good taste of which great credit 
is due to Mr. T. A. Wright of the sub-committee on printing) were sent to many 
historical, genealogical and kindred societies throughout the country, and representa- 
tives of a number of these societies occupied seats upon the stage. 

Both the afternoon reception and the evening meeting were exceedingly pleasant 
and interesting, and the Society has reason to congratulate itself on a most successful 
celebration of its twenty-fifth anniversary. It is proposed to publish a volume con- 
taining a full account of the proceedings, together with the addresses delivered and 
other data relating to the Society. Copies of this volume will be sent to the members. 


Moore. — [The following letter, received by Mr. Henry T. Drowne, is published 
at the request of the Board of Trustees of the Society. — Pub. Com. \ 

71 Hornsey Rise, N., London, N. Y. 
December 30, 1893. 
My dear Mr. Drowne : Your card of 15th, communicating to me the news of 
the death of our old and esteemed friend Mr. Charles B. Moore, is at hand, and I 
take the first opportunity of expressing to you and my other friends of the N. Y. 
Genealogical and Biographical Society my deep sense of the loss which we have sus- 
tained in his death. 

1894-] Notes and Queries. 


Mr. Moore was one of the earliest of those who rallied to the support of the Society, 
shortly after its establishment in 1869 ; he was one of its most interested and punctu- 
ally attending members— even to his latest days ; and he was the one, perhaps, who 
was most particularly fond of genealogical record for its own sake, among us. His 
early training as a lawyer seemed to have given him a special bias towards genea- 
logical investigations : he had a curious faculty for what I called " underground rum- 
maging — that is, the following, with a keen scent, of certain lines of evidence, quite 
unobservable toothers, which would finally turn up, in the most unexpected quarters, 
as facts, or at least as very strong links of presumptive evidence. 

In every fiber of his being he was (1) a Long Islander, and (2) a New Yorker ; and 
thus State and island enlisted all his interest as fields of labor. And his intimate 
acquaintance with the island, its old families, traditions, civil and religious history, 
etc., etc., combined with his legal training and mental acumen, gave him a wonderful 
advantage in his genealogical labors. Almost contemporaneously with his joining 
the Society — possibly before that date — he inaugurated a work which was to be, I 
think, to New York and Long Island genealogy, what Judge Savage's Genealogical 
Dictionary is to New England. It was to be at once a dictionary and an index to 
the biography and genealogy of the State of New York. He invited cooperation, and 
the Society has always maintained a committee to cooperate with him in this great 
work. But the work was so vast in its plan and ramifications, and planned on lines 
so essentially peculiar to Mr. Moore's own individuality, that these committees gen- 
erally found that there was but little cooperation needed, except to give that moral 
support which every diligent student in such quarries always likes to have behind him, 
and so this great work in MSS., which I believe is to become the property of the 
Society, will remain to us as an evidence and a monument of the donor's own labors 
and individuality. Knowing its character, as I do, from personal observation, I 
congratulate the Society upon its possession — avast thesaurus from which the student 
of New York history may draw in years to come. 

Mr. Moore was a man of peculiar ways and modes of thought. He was, perhaps, 
somewhat crotchety ; his likes and dislikes strongly pronounced; but those who knew 
him best knew that he had a most kindly (even a tender) heart, and a disposition of 
helpfulness to all with whom he came in contact. Of his standing as a lawyer, others 
can speak better than I can ; but I fancy, from what I knew of him, that he was strong- 
est in the looking up of evidence and in the matter of sound advice. 

We shall miss his venerable form at our meetings around our library table ; the 
white locks, the keen eyes looking half-humorously over his glasses, the thin lips bear- 
ing the faint indication of a cynical smile; we shall miss his curt sentences and his 
sometimes fiery retort to any fancied aspersions upon his beloved Long Island. 

His papers read before us were always full of sound sense ; full of recondite clues 
to "possible links" of evidence ; full of abiding faith in a God in history. He was 
the Nestor among us ; a man of singular modesty — else he would long since have 
occupied our presidential chair — a man looked up to among us, and whose absence 
henceforth makes some of us feel ourselves older than before. 

Always interested in interesting others in the objects of our Society, his last work 
of love to us seems to have been the securing for our Society the valuable bequest 
received from the late Mrs. Coles. His influence, so unobtrusively yet effectually 
exercised in this matter, as on many previous occasions, must ever be a pleasant 
remembrance to us — the fitting closing act of a good life well and usefully spent. 

Be pleased, my dear friend, to convey to the Society and my former associates of 
the earlier days of our organization my sincere sympathy with them in this our com- 
mon loss, and believe me, sir, Yours truly, HENRY R. STILES.

Provoost. — Can the readers of The Record inform me as to " Samuel Prevoost, 
young man born and lived in New York," who married, March 2, 1722, " Maritie 
Meyyers (should be Myer), young daughter born and lived in Ackinsack," Hacken- 
ensack, N. J. ? (Pub. Holland Society, Record of Hackensack Dutch Reformed 
Church, vol. i. part i. p. 44.) She was a daughter of Jan (Johannes) Myer; he 
was baptized June 12, 1667, in New York City ; he married Jannetie (Cornelise) 
Banta, of Hackensack, N. J. He was son of Marten Janszen Mijer ( = Myer), 
of Elsvliet, Holland, who was in America before 1654, and was one of the schepens 
of Amersfoort, Long Island, for several years. He was married in Dutch Reformed 
Church in the Fort at New Amsterdam, October 2S, 1662, to Hendrickje Hermans, 
of Amsterdam, Holland. 

On February 6, 1721, Johannes Myer and Jannetie his wife for ,£150 sold their 
house and land in Hackensack, on right-hand side of the present Old Dutch Reformed 
Church, to William Provoost, of the city of New York, merchant. Deed acknowl- 
edged before David Provoost, Esq., one of his Majesty's justices of the peace for the 
county of Bergen, N. J. This was nearly one year previous to Samuel's marriage. 

1734. June 30. Samuel Piovoost and wife (under name of Brevoort) are wit- 
nesses in said Hackensack Church at baptism of " child of Johannes Labag and 
Rachel Meyer." She was a sister of Jannetie (his wife). 

1738. June 9. Samuel Provoost and wife are witnesses at baptism of child of 
Jacobus Bogaert and wife. On same day is baptized Samuel Provoost, son of David 
W. Provoost and Annake Van der Water. 

1740. September 28. Baptism of Jannetje, (daughter of) Samuel Brevoort and 
Maritje Meier ; the witnesses are Jacobus Bogart and wife. 

1752. Sem (Samuel) Prevoost and Mareytje Meyer witnessed baptism of Sem 
Prevoost), child of Johannes Prevoost and Marregrietje Van Hoorn.

Gerrit Van Horn was a witness to will of Johannes Myer. 

Have examined Mr. Purple's Genealogy of the Provoost Family, but cannot find 
any Samuel Provoost that fits this Samuel. I am satisfied that the name was Provoost 
and not Brevoort. 1 find on the baptismal register of Kingston church, Ulster County, 
N. Y., p. 26, No. 474 : t s6, July 11, baptized Samuel, child of Benjamin Provoost 
and Elsje Alberts, but he does not appear to be the one I am after. 

I do not find name of Samuel Provoost on list of the Burghers of New Amsterdam 
and Freemen of New York. 1675— 1686

Carpenter. — The following is extracted from MS. records in the office of the 
Secretary of State at Albany, and may be of interest to the readers of the Record ; 

On Dec. 4, 1721, the following petition .was sent to Governor William Burnett : 

" The humble Petition of Joseph Carpenter and Job Wright Inhabitants within 
the county of Westchester in behalf of themselves and nine others of the new settlers 
back in the woods between Rye and Bedford showeth that your petitioners about three 
years ago having with sixteen others purchased from Capt. Robert Walter and com- 
pany a tract of land contiguous in the back of Rye and within the limit of said town- 
ship, have at their own very great cost and expense and labors settled themselves 
thereon, and by their industry and number, they being upwards than Thirty able men, 
tho' poor, cultivated and improved the same for the subsistence and livelyhood of 
themselves and their families — a thing very hard to perform by new settlers," etc.. 
etc. The balance of the petition, a very long document, recites the high rate of their 
taxes, which they think have been unjustly levied upon them by the authorities of Rye. 

We can easily believe they were " poor," for by tradition they " bonded their town " 
in order to buy a grindstone; but if they had only told us the names of the nine, six- 
teen, and thirty others we would have liked it. But perhaps the following will give 
a little information on that point and also show their " Temperance proclivities." 

Robert Carpenter, William Dusinberre, henery Dusinberre, Richard Wooley, 
Reuben Kallam, david Siebe, Robert Knowlton, Jacob Forman, Joseph Sails, Joseph 
Fowler, and Richard Honeywell send a petition to Gov. George Clarke requesting 
him to remove Francis Pellem from his position of Justice of the Peace, they stating 
that he was a very violent man, oppressing the poor, and much given to drink, of 
which " his favorite toddy is Punch." (Petition dated 1722.) 

Besides the above there is a petition for a ferry to Long Island, dated 173S, signed 
by Joseph Carpenter and John Patting. But the result of these three petitions does 
not appear on record. 


Schureman, Schuurman, Thomson. — I wish to have help in tracing these per- 
sons in their last days. 

Ferdinand Schureman, born about 1731, was one of the freeholders of Middlesex 
County, who met at New Brunswick, N. j., January 3, 1775, and was chosen as one of 
the Committee of Observation and Inspection for New Brunswick, who should meet 
with the others at New Brunswick, January 16th, to choose a committee of corre- 
spondence for a limited lime. Eleanor Voorhees was received to church membership 
at New Brunswick, June 28, 1782, as his widow. She died July 29, 1S09, and her 
tombstone is in the yard of the First Dutch Church, N. P.. The conjecture is 
natural that, during the British occupation of New Brunswick, Ferdinand died and 
was buried elsewhere. 

Antje (De Riemer) Stryker Schuurman, baptized in New York. October 4, 1721, 
was wife of Peter Stryker, say 174T-49 , his "wedenwe" November 9, 1750; and 
wife of John Schuurman, February, 1751-July 6, 1795, when he died. Her daughter

Jane, by her first husband, married John Thomson, Captain, and about 179S they 
removed to the State of New York, through fellowship with their son-in-law, Rev. 
Conrad Ten Eyck, who had married their daughter Jane Thomson. For a time they 
were at Aal Plaats (Eel Place), near Schenectady — a hamlet which I have been unable 
to identify. Afterwards Captain Thomson was located two miles from Fonda's 
Bosch, say at what is now called Broadalbin (formerly Broadalbane ?). The widow 
Schuurman seems to have gone with them. The two Thomsons and Mrs. Schuur- 
man were members of the church at New Brunswick, May 1, 1794 ; opposite the 
name for the latter is the sign for "removed." I have tried in vain to find their 
church membership in the State of New York. richard wynkoop. 

An Old Print. — "A Draught of an Engagement between Guardaloupe & Grand- 
terre on the 12th Nov r . 1746 between y e Brig Greyhound of New York Rich. Jeffrey, 
Comr. of 14 Guns & 92 Men & y e La Fleury a French Ship of 22 Guns & 84 Men & a 
French Privateer Sloop of 14 Guns & 1 30 Men Wherein Capt n . Jeffrey & Company, 
Behaved very Gallantly & after an Engagement of 5 hours oblidg'd the Privateer to 
Sheer off & took y e Ship." 

The above is an inscription on an old print, commemorating a naval engagement 
which was considered such a remarkable victory, that the print, representing the ships 
in action, was struck off and a copy presented to each officer of the victorious vessel. 
One of my ancestors was a surgeon on board the Greyhound, and 1 am desirous of 
finding some record or account of the engagement. Is anything known concerning it ? 


Van Tienhoven. — Dr. O'Callahan, in his " History of New Netherland," vol. 
ii, p. 322 {note), referring to the family of Lucas Van Tienhoven, of New York, sur- 
geon, who died A.D. 1714, says that " he married Katharine Man, by whom he had 
six children." 

There is an error in this statement. Katharine Man was his second wife. The 
baptismal records of the Dutch Church show that the mother of eight of the ten chil- 
dren of Dr. Van Tienhoven was his first wife, " Tryntie Bording," who was living as 
late as the year 1695, she and her husband appearing in that year as witnesses at sev- 
eral baptisms. 

It seems that she was also the mother of his two children not mentioned in the 
list of baptisms, but whose names (Nicholas and Susanna) are given in his will. (See 
will, New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, Vol. XII. , p. 50.)

Meyer. — Who were the parents of Andrew Meyer, who married Margaret Demo- 
ree, D. C, N. Y., January 18, 1774? 

There are recorded in Dutch Church, N. Y., the following Andries Meyers: 

Andries, son of Andries Meyer, Jr., and Susanna McFeddericks, baptized April 
23, 1740. 

Andries, son of Cornells Meyer and Sara Sprong, baptized October 29, 1746. 

Andries, son of Laurens Meyer and Annatje Preyer, baptized February iS, 1747. 

Is he one of these ; if so, which one? edward myers. 

Ketchum. — Amos Ketchum, son of Joseph, born in Dutchess County, in 1765, was 
twice married. What were the maiden names of his wives? What was the relation- 
ship between the Morris-Landon and Graham families and the Ketchums? Wills 
dated Stamford, Conn., 165S, and Brookhaven, L. L, about 1700, where would they 
be found on file ? L. D. A. 

Vosburgh.— I would like to ask, through the Record, where " Klinkell " is, or 
was, and whether it is the name of a place or of the estate of Major Peter I. Vos- 
burgh, of Ulster County. Also if the said Major Vosburgh was related to Lieut. 
Evert Vosburgh, of Kinderhook, who died and was buried at Klinkell, according to 
our old Bible record. r. t. v. D. 

Graham. — Was Augustine Graham, of Little and Great Nine Partners, Dutchess 
County, N. Y. , the son of James Graham, Attorney-General of New York in 1685? 
If not, who was his father ? What relation was James Graham, the Attorney-General, 
to James Graham, Duke of Montrose, beheaded in 1650 by the Parliamentary forces?

Macintosh. — A correspondent writes: "Near the old city of Vergennes, Vt., 
said to have been incorporated about 1792, is the lonely farm grave of its first settler, 
inscribed 'Donald Macintosh. Born in Scotland, 1719. Was a soldier under Gen.

Burhans Genealogy. Descendants from the First Ancestor in America, 
Jacob Burhans, 1660, and his son Jan Burhans, 1663, to 1893. Compiled by 
SAMUEL BURHANS, Jr., Trustee of the New York Genealogical and Biographical 
Society, etc. New York : Printed for Private Circulation, 1894. Royal Svo, pp. 
vi + 799, with illustrations. 

The compiler of a family history who starts out with Dutch, -Huguenot, and English 
blood in his veins soon finds that the task he has undertaken is not an easy one but 
is beset with many obstacles. Hence we hail with eager praise the production of a 
work like the one before us. The making of similar ones is not common, although 
the signs of the times indicate that the harvest is promising. The date of birth and 
place of residence of the founder of the Burhans family has not been determined. 
Jacob Burhans and his son Jan were the first ancestors of the family in America. It 
appears that the first named came out as a soldier in the employ of Gov. Stuyvesant 
previous to 1660, and that his son Jan came out in the ship Bontecce in the spring of 
1663. Jacob Burhans in December 1660 became one of the constituting members of 
the Dutch Church in Wiltwyck, now Kingston, N. Y. His son Jan was admitted a 
member of the same church, 3d July, 1664. He married Helena Traphagan, and their 
eldest child was fanneke, who married, 12th October, 1697, Pieter Du Bois, a son of 
Jaques Du Bois and Pierone Bentyn. Barent Burhans was the eldest son of Jan 
Burhans who reached majority. He was baptized in the Dutch Church in Kingston, 
24th April, 168 1, and married in same place Margariet Jans Matthyssen Blanchan 
(Blanchard). From this time the descent of this large and important family is carefully 
traced to the present day. 

An important feature of this elaborate work is the care with which the female 
branches are traced through two or more generations. Beside the Burhans family, 
materials more or less full are found of the following families — viz. : Ackerman, 
Adriance, Allen, Auchmoody, Avery, Barker, Baily, Baldwin, Barnes, Bassett, 
Beadle, Becker, Beekman, Benedict, Benjamin, Bennett, Betts, Bishop, Blanshan,

The author of this volume has produced a work which commands the admiration 
of every cultivator of family history. The descendants of the sturdy Dutch, the 
enterprising and self-sacrificing French Huguenot, the adventurous and liberty-loving 
English, will here find much to instruct and aid them in their ancestral investiga- 
tions ; and while we could have wished that a notation based on that generally 
adopted by American genealogists had been used in order to facilitate the tracing 
of descendants to their first ancestors in America, still we will say that all praise 
is due to the distinguished author for his indefatigable and useful labor in the 
production of this large and sumptuous volume. The composition, printing and 
presswork comes from the De Vinne Press and carries a meed of praise. s. s, p. 

Some of. .the Ancestors of Rodman Stoddard of Woodbury, Conn., and 
Detroit, Mich. A Compilation by Edward Deacon, of the Fairfield County 
Historical Society, Bridgeport, Conn.; Stiles & Tucker. 1893. 

In this little pamphlet of 86 pages Mr. Deacon has traced the ancestry of his 
wife's father, Rodman Stoddard, in several lines to the first American ancestry. The 
very interesting and full account of Anthony Stoddard, the first settler of that name 
in this country, from the time of his arrival here in 1638-9 throughout his life in 
Boston, shows much labor and a very thorough search of the early records. 

Anthony Stoddard married Mary Downing, who was a niece by marriage of 
Governor John Winthrop, the founder of Boston. It was. undoubtedly through this 
connection that Anthony Stoddard became so prominent in the early history of 
Boston. Among the many offices which he held was that of representative to the 
General Court, being elected to that office for twenty years successively, a distinction 
which the compiler states no other person since then has achieved. 

An interesting illustration of the tendency of certain families and their connec- 
tions to pursue the same calling or profession is shown on a chart which Mr. Deacon 
has prepared. In the generation of Anthony Stoddard and two of his connections by 
marriage, and the two succeeding generations of their children and grandchildren we 
find this unusually large number of eminent divines of New England : Rev. John 
Cotton, Rev. Richard Mather, Rev. John Wareham, Rev. Increase Mather, Rev. 
Eleazar Mather, Rev. Solomon Stoddard, Rev. Cotton Mather, Rev. Wareham 
Mather and Rev. Anthony Stoddard. 

Besides that of Stoddard short accounts are given of other families whose first 
settlers were respectively Governor Thomas Welles. Israel Curtis of Southbury, Conn., 
Robert Walker of Boston, William Judson of Concord, Mass., Governor John 
Winthrop, Emmanuel Downing of Ipswich. A pedigree chart at the end of the 
pamphlet shows very clearly and concisely the descent, in their several lines from 
Anthony Stoddard, of Rodman Stoddard and such well-known men as Aaron Burr, 
Governor William Woodbridge of Michigan and General William Tecumsch 

The plan adopted in this work, of tracing to an individual his different lines of 
descent from the first American ancestors, is a branch of genealogical research to 
which more attention is constantly being given ; and though necessarily more difficult 
and requiring more wide-spread investigation than the old plan of carrying down the 
different lines of descent from a first settler to the various individuals having his

blood, still it is of vastly more importance to the individual. This pamphlet of Mi 
Deacon's is a valuable addition to this branch of genealogy. 

Noah Porter, A Memorial by Friends. Edited by George S. Merriam. 
With portraits. New York : Charles Scribner's Sons, 1893. 'Svo, cloth, pp. 306. 

No Yale student of the early '70's can ever forget the thrill of sorrow and of 
delight that went through the college when it was announced that President Woolsey 
had resigned, and that he was to be succeeded in the curule chair by Noah Porter ; 
sorrow that the venerable form and kindly face of dear old " Prexie " would no longer 
lie seen in the college pulpit at morning prayers, and delight that Dr. Porter had 
received a well-earned and well-deserved promotion. For Dr. Porter was loved at 
old Yale, and every undergraduate, from lordly senior to humble freshman, knew 
that behind what sometimes seemed an austerity of manner was " a mild ami healing 
sympathy that stole away the sadness " of marks and flunks. And no one who sat 
under his teaching can ever forget the genial twinkle in his eyes when, in the class in 
Moral Ethics, he propounded his favorite conundrum and its answer : " What is 
mind? No matter. What is matter ? Nevermind." 

The book before us is a loving tribute to his memory, written by those who knew 
him best. His sister, his brother, his college class-mate, his associate in the faculty, 
his companion in mountain tramps, his appreciator of one and of another side of his 
many-sided nature tell of him as boy. as man. as student, as instructor, as theologian, 
as friend — the result being a full and complete picture of the perfect man. The key- 
note of his character is struck by President Carter when he says : " He saw so much 
good in men, and was so desirous that that good should have fullscope, that it may be 
safely assumed that the constant demands on his time and assistance were met with 
much greater ease and exhausted him far less, than if his kindness and love for men had 
been a superficial thing. It was not superficial, but controlled and quickened the depth 
of his nature." The book contains two portraits, an excellent photogravure as a 
frontispiece, showing him as he looked in the later years of his life, and another 
from a photograph taken in 1S06. It is a volume which every Yale man should have 
on his reading-table. T G. E.

This book is illustrated by 34 photo-engraved portraits, three views, a map

some places, but conveys little information in a volume containing 563 family geneal- 
ogies. There are in this book genealogies and pedigrees of the following families: 
Allison, Abbott, Badeau, Baldwin, Barlow, P.etts, Chase, Coe, Eels, Frost, Goddard, 
Green, Gurnee, Hendrie, Hyatt, Ireland, Lockwood, Loutrel, Marvin, Osborn, 
Palmer, Peck, Pine, Robertson, Wallace, Wilkinson, Wise and Wright. There is a 
good index of 36 pages, double column. The generations are sometimes shown by 
index figure, but figures are omitted as designations of individuals, and we think this 
an unfortunate omission, for there is no easier way to trace a line than by the addi- 
tion of a figure at the first appearance and each recurrence of the name. This work 
shows great industry and will be justly valued. k. h. g.

Materials for a History of the Family of John Sullivan of Berwick, 
New England, and of the O'Sullivan of Ardea, Ireland. Chiefly collected 
by the late Thomas Coffin Amory. With a pedigree of O'Sullivan Beare, by Sir J. 
Bernard Burke, C.B., LL.D., Ulster. Printed for private distribution. Cambridge : 
John Wilson and Son, University Press, 1893. 8vo, 6i x 9+ pp. 154, xx. 

This collection consists of a list of publications by Thos. C. Amory, on the subject 
of the Sullivan family, a chronological list of the documents printed or noticed, filling 
eleven pages ; then follows the narrative and documents, comprising letters with 
enclosures, copies of bills, accounts, advertisements, and monumental inscriptions, 
which together make Part I., In New England, sixty pages. Part II., In Ireland, 
includes the pedigree of O'Sullivan Beare, on a folding map, by Sir J. B. Burke, 
with an analysis or series of notes. In tables across double pages, from 149 to 154, 
is the genealogy of John Sullivan, born 1690, Limerick, and his six children: John, 
the well-remembered major-general in our Revolution ; Daniel and Ebenezer, 
captains in the same struggle ; Benjamin the eldest, who was lost at sea in the 
British navy before that war, and left no family ; Mary, wife of Theophilus Hardy; 
and James who achieved distinction as a judge and afterwards as governor of the 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Truly a family worthy to be chronicled. The 
descendants of each are carried through three generations. It is printed with the 
taste which is always shown by the University Press, and is illustrated with arms, seal 
and map. It would have been improved in the arrangement of the tables, with 
which it concludes, if the break between the pages had been fixed at the divis- 
ions between generations, or if there had been no appearance of division, and each 
table had appeared as a single map. There is no index.

y Genealogy of the Cutts Family in America, Compiled by Cecil Hampden 
Cutts Howard. Albany, N. Y.: Joel Munsell's Sons, Publishers, 1892. 

This beautifully printed volume is an important and welcome contribution to 
genealogical literature. The author has done his work conamore, and it is well done. 

William Cutts, who was taxed in Saco, Me., in 1640, appears to have been the 
earliest of the name in New England. The Genealogy, however, concerns itself 
chiefly with the descendants of John, Richard and Robert Cutis, known positively to 
have been brothers, and Ann Cutts, their sister. John Cutts is mentioned in the 
Records of Portsmouth, N. II., as early as 1657. John Cutts, Jr., his nephew, also 
has his descendants accounted for. 

Mr. Howard had the inspiration of some very worthy New England names in 
writing of the connection of his ancestors with the families of Penhallow, Vaughn, 
Pepperell, Atkinson, Gerrish, Sparhawk, Appleton and others. 

The text is supplemented by many interesting portraits and a goodly exhibition of 
autograph signatures ; there is, however, a notable absence of heraldic illustrations, 
which could doubtless have been added when we consider the distinguished positions 
of the families whose history the author has related. 

There is nothing apocryphal about the Cutts genealogy. It is frankly stated that 
the descent of the American ancestor from the English stock has not been traced, and 
we are also spared the recital of that too familiar and mythical story concerning the 
first of the name who came into England with the Conqueror. 

The general arrangement of the material is excellent, and four copious indexes 
place the contents of the volume within easy reach of the hurried reader who may be 
in search of particular information. R. K. 

The Dolbeare Family. A Few Facts relating to the Origin and History of 
John Dolbeare of Boston and some of his descendants. Cloth, pp. 32 iv. 

This pleasing book does not claim to be a genealogy, pure and simple, but is exactly 
what is stated in the modest title. The author, Mr. Arthur Dimon Osborne, of New 
Haven, in a letter to the writer, states that only a few copies were printed for the 
family, some of which are without the illustrations. This copy has, in addition to 
the arms, two portraits, photograph of a brass rubbing, and crests from family silver, 
the tables of lineal descent inserted, showing ancestral lines from Richard Osbrone, 
England, 1612 ; Thos. Sherwood; Jehue Burr, Fairfield, 1644 ; John Barlow, 1653 ; 
Thomas Dimon ; Sergeant Edward Hinman ; Edmund Dolbeare ; Major Nathan 
Gold, Fairfield, 1650 ; John Talcott, Hartford, 1632. Also ancestral lines of his

William Blake, Dorchester, 1630, and of his son Thos. Burr Osborne, from Robert 
Johnson, New Haven, 1641 ; Henry Champion, Saybrook, 1647. 

The paper and presswork is fine, but no printer or publisher's name appears. In a 
short preface, after acknowledgments and statement regarding the photograph of. 
rubbing from the brass of Sir Richard, and extracts from records of Hereford Cathe- 
dral, he says : "I had intended to include in the account a statement of all the 
descendants of George Dolbeare, but to make it complete and satisfactory would 
require more time and labor than I can devote to it." He has done well, let another 
do the rest. r. h. g. 

Washington at Tarrytown. A paper read before the Tarrytown Historical 
Society, by Marcus D. Raymond, Tuesday evening, December 16, 1890. Published 
by the author by request, Tarrytown, X. Y.. 1893. Svo, cloth, pp. 28. 

This interesting account of Washington's doings in our neighboring town cannot 
fail to be interesting. Washington was in this region in the summer of 1776. The 
theatre of the war after the fall of Fort Washington was transferred to New Jersey, 
and the North and East which had borne the brunt at the start were relieved from 
much actual conflict, except when Burgoyne came down from the North and Clinton 
moved up from his quarters in the city as far as Kingston, but not far enough to 
save the army which had hoped to cut the colonies in two. Washington himself 
returned to this neighborhood in 17S1, when the war was substantially over. His last 
visit was just before the Evacuation in November, 17S3, when he was accompanied 
by many of the prominent men of the day. Altogether this little volume is very 
acceptable. R. H. G.

Allison Morrison, Author of History of the Morison family, etc. Boston, Mass. 
Published by Damrell & Upham, the Old Corner Bookstore, 1893. Svo, pp. xvi. 312. 

The title leaves little to add about the contents of this book. Samuel, the pro- 
genitor of the family in this country, was born in Londonderry, Ireland, 1690, and 
landed in Boston, Mass., August, 1718. Afterwards he became one of the settlers of 
Nuffield, now Londonderry, N. H. The author, whose fine features appear in the 
frontispiece, has written many valuable works, among which are the History of 
Windham, N. H. (a copy of which this Society has long wanted), and the Morrison 
and Morris genealogies.

The SHARPES. Published monthly by W. C. Sharpe, Seymour, Conn. Price % 1 
per year. 

This is an enterprising little periodical whose motto might be : " When found 
make a note of." It was begun in January, 1893, and is designed as a storehouse for 
such genealogical material relating to the Sharpe family as may come into the editor's 
hands from time to time. He is thus enabled to put into print many interesting facts 
without the delay inseparable from the publication of the conventional genealogy. 

The project of issuing a monthly magazine in the interest of a particular family is 
certainly a most excellent one and worthy of emulation. In this way valuable facts 
are at once embalmed in print and saved from destruction. 

Mr. Sharpe intimates that he has not had the support he had hoped for from those 
who should be most interested, but doubtless when his periodical becomes better 
known the subscription list will increase. R. K. 

Memorial Addresses on the Life and Character of Mrs. David Hewes

Lowthorpe is a small parish in the Wapentake of Dickering, having about one 
hundred and fifty inhabitants. It is a perpetual curacy in the Archdeaconry of York.

This parish gave name to the family of Loii'throp. Lorthrop, or Lathrop. The church, 
which was dedicated to St. Martin, had for one of its chaplains, in the reign of 
Richard the Second, Robert de Louthorp. Thus Rev. Mr. Huntington begins his 
history of the family of the Lathrops : " The subject of these addresses was de- 
scended directly from Rev. John Lathrop, the pioneer emigrant from England, 1634. 
One of the most hardy and remarkable of those Christian heroes of our earliest 
Colonial life. This tribute sets forth in good form the worth and excellence of her life. 
Affection evidently was the inspiration of the work, and it had but to tell the truth to 
show her excellence and worthy life.'' G. g.

Vol. XXV. NEW YORK, JULY, 1S94. No. 


By Epher Whitakek, D.D. 

There are some possessions which no man can acquire as the object 
of his own desire and choice. They may surpass in worth and excel- 
lence the fruits of his most persistent and assiduous toil. They are richer 
than gold, more precious than rubies, more enduring and indestructible 
than any treasures of houses and lands upon earth. They come to a man 
by inheritance. They rest upon the virtues of his ancestors. He may 
prize them greatly and profit by them, or he may treat them lightly and 
disregard them ; but he cannot forego them, nor essentially change them. 
They bear the stamp impressed upon them by the character and life of 
preceding generations. 

These possessions are fundamental. One may build upon them, as 
the noblest structures of architectural genius and skill are reared upon 
foundations laid deeply below the surface of the ground. The grandest 
and loftiest cathedrals must conform to the lines and spring up from the 
immovable courses of the base. One may build a superstructure high or 
low, beautiful or ungainly. It may be constructed of the richest or the 
meanest materials, the finest marble or the coarsest stone, but on its own 
foundation it must rest. 

So it is with the basis of every man's life. No one can choose the 
conditions of his own birth, nor determine whether he shall be in nature 
Greek or Roman, Briton or American, born in lofty or lowly place. He 
must begin his course with what results from the condition and deeds of 
his ancestors. 

All this is, of course, well understood by genealogists. There is no 
need of enlargement. 

To Charles B. Moore these fundamental and substantial possessions 
came in large measure and excellence of quality. 

As he was among the earliest members and officers of the New York 
Biographical and Genealogical Society, so his pedigree was almost the 
first to be presented for registration on its bocks. (See New York Bio- 
graphical and Genealogical Record, vol. i., No. 1, p. 2.) 

His earliest ancestors in America came from the western shore of the 
North Sea, from Suffolk County, England. They made their permanent 
home in the New World at the east end of Long Island, in Suffolk County, 
New York. The name of their Long Island town, Southold, as well as 
that of their county, Suffolk, came from their English home. 

Thomas Moore, born in England about 16 15, was the first of the 
family to establish himself in Southold. It was before 1636 that he took 

106 Biographical Sketch of Charles B. Moore. [July, 

for his wife Martha Youngs, daughter of the Rev. Christopher Youngs, 
vicar of Reydon, Suffolk County, England. The chapel in Southwold 
was then attached to St. Margaret's of Reydon, and at Southwold, July i, 
1613, Martha Youngs was baptized. She came with her husband and his 
mother, Ann Moore, to Salem, New England, as early as 1636. Subse- 
quently both husband and wife and some of her kindred removed to 
Southold, Long Island. She lived thereuntil 1671 or later. This removal 
to Long Island was probably in 1651. (See New York Biographical 
and Genealogical Record, vol. xv., No. 2, pp. 57-67.) From that 
date until his death, forty years later, Thomas Moore was one of the fore- 
most citizens of Southold, intelligent, venturesome, enterprising, prosperous, 
and in full communion with the church. His concern in the ownership and 
freighting of vessels, and perhaps in sailing them, caused him to be some- 
times called mariner. But, however deeply interested in his ventures 
upon the sea, he took good care to increase his possessions upon the 
land. On the tax list of 1675 he and his sons stand for more than ..any 
other man and his sons in the town except one. His homestead in the 
village is a beautiful site, and his home lot of six acres is bounded on the 
east by the town creek, which was in his day navigable for sea-going ships. 

Seven years after his settlement in Southold he had gained so high a 
standing among his intelligent and enterprising fellow-citizens that he was 
chosen one of the two representatives of the town in the General Court 
for the jurisdiction, the New Haven colony, to which Southold belonged 
from 1640 to 1662. 

Mr. Moore, in 1659, purchased the house and home lot of the famous 
Capt. John Underhill, the professional soldier and skilful fighter of In- 
dians. Capt. Underbill's first wife died in Southold while his home was 
in that place. Part of his home lot in the centre of the village is now 
covered by the Southold Savings Bank. Three years after the purchase 
from Underhill, Mr. Moore conveyed this property to his son, Thomas 
Moore, Jr. 

In 1662 he became the owner of a large tract of land bordering on 
Long Island Sound. This fine estate is northwest of the present village 
of Greenport and adjacent to it. The place continues in the ownership 
and possession of the family. It has been the homestead for the last 
hundred and sixty years. It is now owned by the children and a younger 
brother of Charles B. Moore. It extends along the Sound on the north, 
and later additions on the south border the shore of the strait that here 
connects Gardiner's and Peconic Bays. The land is sufficiently level 
and fertile for culture and fine adornment ; and noble trees — oaks, hick- 
ories, locusts, and others — grow spontaneously. From the dwelling house 
the eye looks towards the main and surveys the waters of the Sound 
with the vessels of travel and of traffic thereon. The picture changes 
unceasingly. Beyond this large body of water, villages on the Connecti- 
cut shore are visible by day, and light-houses shine there at night. These 
are also seen in other directions. Eastward one beholds the villages of 
East Marion and Orient, with Plum Island, Gull Islands, and Fisher's 
Island farther away. Under the noonday sun Shelter Island reposes 
in grace and beauty. Greenport flourishes near at hand. Toward the 
southwest, beyond the charming Peconic, which reflects the sky, a long 
outline of the Hamptons is the bound of vision. 

It was in the midst of these various scenes of land and water, with

their manifold promptings of wide thought, deep emotion, and pure sen- 
timents, that Charles B. Moore well improved the advantages of his boy- 
hood and youth. 

This place was conveyed in 1687-88, by the founder of the family, to 
his grandson Thomas. He had previously made conveyances of lands 
to his sons Thomas, Nathaniel, and Benjamin, in order to increase their 
responsibility and their good standing among their fellow townsmen. 
The official records of his day, made in Southold, Southampton, and 
other places, show many entries which attest Thomas Moore's enterprise 
by sea and land ; his good standing in the church ; his prominence in 
public affairs ; and his ability to prosper. 

After the capture of New York by the Dutch in 1673, they desired to 
make all Long Island obey them, and attempted to make Thomas Moore 
a magistrate of Southold. Many in the city doubtless knew him well. 
But he refused the office, even though a worthy selection of commissioners 
were sent to Southold and entered Mr. Moore's house for the purpose of 
gaining his acceptance. In 1683, being a chief officer of the town, he 
was one of a committee to choose a member of the first Legislative Assem- 
bly of the Province of New York. He died in 1691. 

The later ancestors of Charles B. Moore were fit successors of the 
founder of the family in America. The pedigree is registered, and it is 
needless now to adduce the whole line in this place. 

The father of Charles B. Moore was Colonel Jeremiah Moore, a prom- 
inent citizen of the town, eminent for his social virtues, his genial in- 
fluence, and his sturdy uprightness. Mr. Moore's mother was Julia 
(Brush) Moore, a native of Smithtown, Long Island. She survived her 
husband, and finished her beautiful and beneficent course on the 29th of 
August, 1873, in her ninety-second year. She was the mother of three sons 
and three daughters. The eldest daughter, Frances Maria, the widow of the 
Reverend William Huntting, resides at the homestead of her ancestors. 
The other daughters, Mary Adeline and Julia Brush, with the second son, 
Jeremiah, continued to reside there until the end of their days, each at an 
age exceeding seventy years. The youngest son, William H. Helme 
Moore, has resided for fifty years in the city of New York. 

Mrs. Moore was a descendant of the Reverend George Phillips of 
Brookhaven, Long Island, who was a son of the Reverend Samuel Phillips, 
a graduate of Harvard College in 1650, and thenceforth the pastor of 
Rowley, Massachusetts, until his death in 1695. Samuel's father was the 
Reverend George Phillips, who, with Sir Richard Saltonstall and others, 
founded Watertown,. Massachusetts, in 1630, and continued to be the 
minister thereof until his death. Mrs. Moore manifested earnest religious 
devotion, with sincere kindness and dignity of person and manner. Her 
mental powers were vigorous , and she was efficient in .the activities be- 
coming her sex and station in life. She made order, comfort, and refine- 
ment abide in her home. She commanded the respect and affection of 
her children. She also made sure of the obedience and good will of her 
servants. Thus she made her life a boon to the place of her residence, 
and a source of strength and joy to the Christian church, whose com- 
munion she shared and prized. Even after she had numbered fourscore 
years the goodness of her inmost spiritual life gave a charming beauty to 
her countenance. Moses, the man of God, prayed for the beauty ol the 
Lord. Mrs. Moore possessed it. The subject of this memoir made his

visits to her until her latest hour. The mother and the son were worthy 
of each other. 

The latter was born December 2, 1808, and lived in his infancy and 
boyhood on the homestead of his ancestors. The teachers of his boy- 
hood were more than ordinarily fitted for their duty. His father culti- 
vated a large farm, and was an inventor of machines. This son acquired 
the knowledge to be gained on a farm, and shared his father's inclination 
toward mechanics and machinery. At Sterling, now Greenport, half the 
male inhabitants were seafaring men. The youth made the acquaintance 
of the perils and productions of the sea, and became familiar with the 
language and the habits of seamen. All this knowledge was subsequently 
well used. 

The war with Great Britain, in 18 12-15, had its effect upon him. 
His father was the highest officer of the militia regiment which guarded 
a wide district open to incursions from British warships. His household 
guard, and his armed and mounted messengers, were daily before the 
eyes of his son. It was the father's chief duty to prevent the seizure of 
supplies, or the voluntary sale of them. The landing of a torpedo near 
his home, and the attendant hostilities on land and water which the lad 
witnessed, were all vividly impressed upon his memory. 

As boyhood advanced he went for study to Smithtown, and, residing 
with his grandmother Brush, he studied the Latin language under the 
direction of Dr. Charles R. Havens, then clerk of Suffolk County, whom 
he assisted in the duties of the office. The county records of 1822 are 
partly in the handwriting of the young assistant. At the close of this 
year he made his first visit to New York — from Smithtown to Brooklyn 
by stage, and from Brooklyn to New York by horseboat. Above Chatham 
Square and Canal Street the land was generally inclosed and cultivated. 
He attended the Christmas services in St. George's Church, Beekman 
Street, the first Episcopal church he ever entered. He was interested in 
the music which he heard in this and other churches. On his return 
home he continued his classical studies in 1823 and 1824, in Southold, 
under the Rev. Jonathan Huntting, a graduate of Yale, the pastor of the 
Southold church of his ancestors, and in company with the pastor's son, 
William Huntting. 

The principal lawyer of Southold, Thomas Storrs Lester, was his 
father's cousin and military adjutant. The early death and large funeral 
of this active and noted man were very impressive. Ourc'assical student 
lived with his great-aunt, Mr. Lester's mother, part of the time that he 
studied in Southold. She became to him a venerable historic character, 
and half a century later he deemed her reminiscences as valuable as the 
dim histories of Greece and Rome, which he tried to master in a foreign 

In June, 1825, ne went to New York, and entered the office of Major 
James Fairlie, clerk of the Supreme Court of that city, and continued 
there for several 5 ears. The records of the office attest his industry. The 
clerk had been a Revolutionary officer, an alderman, a legislator, and a 
member of the constitutional convention of 182 1. He was a very exact 
and careful officer ; and under this stern disciplinarian his young amanu- 
ensis and assistant, in spite of natural bash fulness and timidity, acquired 
fearlessness in transacting business, and the habit of accuracy, excellent 
qualities for any man. 

1894-] Biographical Sketch of Charles B. Moore. i q 

He determined to study law, and commenced his clerkship with 
Peter Dempsey, Esq., who was the deputy clerk under Major Fairiie. 
As the deputy often took the principal's place, so the young clerk often 
acted for the deputy. Thus the student, had many an opportunity of 
hearing Thomas A. Emmet, Dudley Selden, David Graham, and other 
famous orators at the bar. Mr. Dempsey soon authorized Mr. Moore to 
sign both the deputy's and the principal's names to official documents. 
Mr. Moore wisely refrained from the use of this authority except in cases 
of emergency. Thus no fault was found with the sub-deputy. 

In those years Mr. Moore saw many interesting persons at the City 
Hall : Revolutionary heroes, General La Fayette, President Monroe, and 
Presidents succeeding him ; Judge Egbert Benson ; Governors De Witt 
Clinton, Daniel D. Tompkins, Joseph C. Yates, and Morgan Lewis ; 
Senator C. D. Colden, and many others. These persons taught the young 
man the difference between the private conduct of public men and their 
popular reputation. He completed his legal studies in the office of Wil- 
liam H. Harison, Esq., afterwards controller of Trinity Church. Mr. 
Harison was a son of the more noted lawyer, Richard Harison. He had 
his father's excellent collection of books. The student had a fine oppor- 
tunity to learn from books. He was also introduced to good company. 
He coveted both advantages and improved them. He acquired no bad 
habits, but cultivated his taste for reading solid old authors. He saw 
something of the venerable Richard Harison, who was distinguished for 
ability, learning, and probity, and who resided in the country near the 
present Thirty-second Street, on an eminence commanding a fine view of 
the North River. This eminent man died in December, 1829, and the 
monument to his memory, inside the walls of old Trinity, bears a classical 
inscription selected by his friend, Clement C. Moore, a son of Bishop 
Benjamin Moore. Mr. Harison 's residence was sold by his executors to 
the Hon. David S. Jones, who became an acquaintance of Mr. Moore. 

At this time Mr. Moore came also into pleasant relations with the 
Hon. John C. Spencer, son of Chief Justice Ambrose Spencer. These 
relations and their advantages enlarged his views, corrected some errors, 
and helped him when he began to practice his profession. He was inter- 
ested in the case of De Caters vs. La Farge, and this introduced him to 
another revisor of the statutes, the Hon. Benjamin F. Butler, afterward 
attorney-general of the United States. The friendship continued until 
the death of Mr. Butler. 

Mr. Moore, at twenty-two years of age, became an attorney of the 
Supreme Court and a solicitor of the Court of Chancery. He became a 
counsellor of both in 1833-34, and subsequently of the higher courts. 
including the Supreme Court of the United States. He was a long time 
the city agent of the Hon. Selah B. Strong, afterwards member of Con- 
gress and judge of the Supreme Court ; as well as of the Hon. Hugh 
Halsey, county judge and surrogate, surveyor-general of the State, 
presidential elector, and member of both houses of the legislature. Mr. 
Moore held the same relation to the Hon. George Miller, legislator, 
judge, and surrogate. All these were of Suffolk County. 

Early in 1834 he formed a partnership with Charles G. Havens, whose 
ancestors were from Long Island. This continued until May 1, 1838. 
They opened their office at 7 Nassau Street, opposite the present United 
States Treasury Building, and announced that one of them would always 

j IO Biographical Sketch of Charles B. Moore. [July, 

be there during business hours. Mr.' Havens, active and fond of exer- 
cise, generally attended to calls away from the office. Mr. Moore, lame 
and less robust, was content to read law, history, and politics in the 

In 1835 the firm had the conveyancing of the large estate of Mrs. 
Ann Rodgers, widow of Nicholas Cruger, which was then sold by her 
executors, Francis B. Cutting and N. C. Heyward. This led to much 
other business of the same kind. About this time Mr. Moore was ten- 
dered the office of examiner in Chancery. He deemed it undesirable to 
turn away in any measure from his ordinary law business, and astonished 
the politicians by declining to accept the office. The next year, 1S36, 
Governor William L. Marcy offered him the higher office of Master in 
Chancery, and it was accepted. 

About 1S43 Messrs. Moore and Havens became associated with 
Francis B. Cutting, Esq., an eminent advocate. While associated with 
him the preparation of the written pleadings, cases, opinions, points, and 
briefs occupied most of Mr. Moore's time. He attended court and assisted 
at the trial or argument only of some of the most troublesome and com- 
plicated cases. The new firm prospered remarkably, as Moore and Havens 
had done ; but ill health constrained Mr. Moore to withdraw from it at a 
later date. He then formed, with the late William V. McDaniel, a quiet 
conveyancing and consulting establishment. Afterwards Clifford A. Hand 
and, subsequently, George B. Bonney joined him. With these he con- 
tinued his association until he retired, in 1883, from active practice, on 
account of age and bodily infirmities. 

Mr. Moore's tastes and habits did not cause him to appear very often 
in the courts. It was his way to counsel advocates and afford them the 
means of success. This he could do because of his rare knowledge of 
the law, and thorough comprehension of its principles. He was a master 
of equitable jurisprudence, and of matters relating to commerce upon the 

One of the important cases in which Mr. Moore's counsel was suc- 
sessfully pursued arose in this way : Just before the outbreak of the war 
between the United States and Mexico, Mr. Harmony organized a 
trading expedition into the latter country. When he was about to cross 
the border he was forbidden to proceed in advance of our invading army. 
By order of General Kearney he followed the column commanded by 
Colonel Doniphan and Colonel Mitchell. The soldiers' control of the 
traders' movements was the only connection between the two parties. 
When the former arrived at Chihuahua they decided to take the city by 
storm, and pushed up Mr. Harmony's loaded wagons close to the wall to 
shield the troops from Mexican bullets. The city was taken, but the 
goods and expedition of Mr. Harmony were practically ruined. He 
applied to Congress for indemnity, but for reasons that need not be 
stated the application was in vain. 

Thereupon he consulted Mr. Moore, and was greatly astonished to be 
advised to bring a simple suit against the officers, or one of them. 
Accordingly, suit was brought against Colonel Mitchell. The government 
promptly adopted his defence. The result before Judge Nelson and a 
jury was a verdict for value of the goods. The Supreme Court of the 
United States affirmed this judgment. Judge Nelson defined for the jury 
with admirable clearness and impartiality, the powers of military officer

to take private property for public use upon a military emergency, and 
the limitations upon those powers, as well as the personal liability of an 
officer who exercises them, and the limitations also upon these liabilities. 
Chief Justice Taney delivered the opinion of the Supreme Court. Mr. 
Cutting was the leading counsel, and met as the opposing counsel in 
Washington the eminent John J. Crittenden, then the attorney-general. 
Mr. Harmony recovered considerably over $100,000. This sum was a 
large amount in those days. Extremely important were the rules thus 
established as the law of the land to check the application of military 
force to peaceful citizens, and to check also excess of reclamations from 
military authorities compelled to act suddenly under pressure of apparent 
military necessity. They were in line with the advice given by Mr. 
Moore, and with the plan devised by him for dealing with what was 
then considered a novel question. 

The case of Post and others against Jones was brought by Mr. Moore 
to a righteous decision with far-reaching consequences. The whaling 
ship Richmond, of Cold Spring Harbor, Long Island, after obtaining 
nearly a full cargo of oil and bone, struck on rocks in Behring Sea. In 
order to be advised of what was necessary and proper to be done, the 
master summoned the officers of other whaling vessels who chanced to be 
near the wreck, and who were the only persons accessible to him, for 
survey and advice. They advised that it was impracticable to save the 
vessel, and that the wreck and her cargo be sold at auction in their 
wrecked condition and for what they would bring. Such a sale was 
accordingly made, but it was practically at the mercy of the other whalers, 
who became purchasers upon their own terms and without competition. 

The oil and bone removed from the wreck were brought by these 
purchasers to the home ports of their ships, or to New York, on their 
account. But proceedings were taken in the Admiralty Court by Mr. 
Moore in behalf of the owners of the wrecked ship Richmond, on the 
ground that such a sale under such circumstances was invalid, and that 
the purchasers ought to account for the value of the oil and the bone and 
be content with a liberal salvage reward. 

In the formal sale the whalebone was treated as of little value and as 
an appurtenant of the oil to be apportioned among the purchasers of the 
latter ; whereas, in the home market it had greatly advanced in value, and 
it, moreover, occupied but a small space in the carrying vessels. 

In the litigation Mr. Moore associated with himself as counsel Daniel 
Lord. He was opposed by Charles O'Conor and others. 

The case went through all the courts up to the Supreme Court of the 
United States, where the position originally taken by Mr. Moore was fully 

It was of importance to ocean commerce in the bounds set by it to 
hard bargains between those who are made helpless by sea disaster and 
those who have exclusive power to render needed assistance, and who 
refuse to render it as salvors or otherwise than in the character of pur- 
chasing owners. 

In the political excitements while General Jackson and Mr. Van Buren 
filled the Presidential office, Mr. Moore strenuously supported the policy 
of these statesmen. Among his personal friends were William Leggett 
and his greater successor, William Cullen Bryant; and Mr. Moore often 
wrote for the Evening Post, which they edited. He supported the Wil-

mot Proviso, resented the action of the Democratic National Convention 
of T848 in Baltimore, and took part with Mr. Van Buren in the Free Soil 
movement of that year. He approved vigorously the ordinances of 1787, 
and when the conflict came in 1861 to 1865 he was zealous for President 
Lincoln and the nation. 

Mr. Moore's high standing and rich fruitfulness as a genealogist and 
biographer made him well and widely known. His attainments and 
activities herein were more or less closely related to his professional 
employments in dealing with real estate, in searching titles, in convey- 
ance of landed property. In these matters, descent and inheritance are 
important. Deeds, wills, and other instruments of writing must be sub- 
mitted to investigation and scrutiny. The competent and skilful real 
estate lawyer gives careful attention thereto. 

Doubtless Mr. Moore had, in large measure, a natural bent and 
aptness for investigations and productiveness of this kind. He had a 
wonderful ability to acquire, retain, and use the knowledge of that infinite 
world of details and particulars which the accomplished genealogist must 
possess and command. 

He became interested in these investigations comparatively early in 
life. He formed the Genealogical Society of Southold in 1861. He was 
at that period giving much time and thought to the production of the 
Personal Indexes of Southold, the remarkable volume which he printed in 

That book gave an immense impulse to genealogical research and 
publication. Its happy and elevating influence has been effective in 
many ways. It has more than blazed the path for not a few persons who 
have used it, and safely followed its intrepid and intelligent guidance. 
They would not have been able to advance at all without it through the 
wilderness of names and dates pertaining to the posterity of early founders 
of Southold. One who has been lost in a dense and seemingly boundless 
forest knows what is the relief and joy given by the coming of a com- 
petent guide. All who desire to know, and try to learn, the early history 
of the old town of Southold, will hold in grateful memory the work and 
name of Charles B. Moore for a thousand years to come. 

He devoted to the preparation of those indexes who knows how many 
successive summers ? And who knows at what expense, and with what 
care and labor, he had every accessible and available source of informa- 
tion explored and exhausted for him ? Who can tell how, and to what 
extent, he employed men to copy all the town records, and all the inscrip- 
tions on all the gravestones and monuments set up during two hundred 
years throughout the whole twenty-five miles of the length cf the town ? 
Unknown are the mysteries of his own personal examination of wills, 
deeds, administrative letters, mortgages, assignments, quit claims, and 
other legal documents of successive generations, in various public offices, 
in order to find names or dates that might possibly enlarge the quantity, 
or increase the accuracy, of the vast accumulation of material which sub- 
mitted to his scrutiny. This material he made the subject of his keen 
analysis, studious comparison, logical inference, and best arrangement 
in symmetry and harmony for his own ready use, and for the most gener- 
ous and ample aid of many others. Who can imagine with what charm- 
ing courtesy and indomitable patience he freely distributed to every proper 
comer from the opulent treasures of his immeasurable stores? 

I S94.] Biographical Sketch of Charles B. Moore. \\ -> 

During the first year of the New York Genealogical and Biographical 
Society, Charles B. Moore took a prominent and efficient part in its 
affairs ; and throughout the next ten years thereafter his pen yielded 
more for its quarterly Record than any other man's. At the first annual 
meeting, the Society elected him one of its two vice-presidents, and also 
a member of the executive committee, and a trustee. He presented at 
that meeting his pedigree for registration in the books of the Society. 
He read at the same time his admirable biography of the Hon. Ezra 
L'Hommedieu. This appeared in the second volume of the Record. 
Previous to the second annual meeting he read his elaborate and recon- 
dite paper on " Dutch and English Intermarriages." It will for a long time 
bean element of no small value in the Record of October, 1872, and 
January, 1873. His "Plan for Genealogical Work" had already been 
read in the Society and printed in the Record. About this time he 
became a life member, and was appointed the chairman of the committee 
on biographical bibliography, an office which he retained twenty-three 
years, until his lamented decease. The Record of October, 1871, con- 
tains his sketch of Francis Brockholst Cutting, an eminent lawyer, who 
had been associated with him in the practice of his profession. During 
the same year he published in the Record "The Vail Family, " and a 
sketch of David Richard Floyd-Jones, who had been a member of both 
houses of the legislature and of the constitutional convention of 1846, 
and the Secretary of State in 1859 and i860. 

In 1872 he read in the Society "The Woodhull and Bray Families 
of Long Island, "and a sketch of the " Circumstances Attending the Occu- 
pation of Florida by the United States." The same year he was elected 
the corresponding secretary. Thenceforward he discharged the duties of 
the office with great faithfulness and ability for ten years. About this 
time he read in the Society a biographical sketch of Daniel Moore, of 
New York, and a paper on Barons Howard and Fffingham, and the 
names Philadelphia and Assaragoe. His '"' Personal Reminiscences of 
the late Hon. Selah B. Strong, Judge of the Supreme Court of this State," 
having been read in the Society, was published in the Record of April, 
1873. It was accompanied by an excellent portrait of Judge Strong from 
a fine steel plate. This was the first of the many attractive portraits which 
have graced the pages of the Record. In the same number may be read 
the address on biography which he delivered at the fourth annual meet- 
ing. In the same year he read a paper on " The Early History of Tangier 
in Africa, with notices of William Smith," and also a "Sketch of the 
Life of John Romeyn Brodhead," as well as a "Sketch of Charles 
Ludlow Livingston." These, too, are in the Record. 

His chief contribution to the Society's Quarterly in 1874 was the 
" Biography of the Rev. Thomas De Witt, D.D." When Dr. De Witt 
was the senior pastor of the Collegiate Reformed Dutch Church he might 
properly be deemed the most eminent clergyman in the city. Mr. 
Moore's life of "John Ledyard, the Traveller," is in the Record of Jan- 
uary, 1S76. It is bright, keen, vigorous, one of the most characteristic 
products of Mr. Moore's intellectual penetration and graceful pen. 

In the Record, a year later, one may read his " Sketch of the Rev. 
William B. Sprague, D.D. ," the author of the Annals of the American 

For a series of years after he became a member of the Society's Publi- 

II_i Biographical Sketch of Charles B. Moore. [J u ty> 

cation Committee, his pen was unceasingly active in writing notices of 
books, and brief sketches of persons recently deceased. 

In 1877 he published "John Rogers, the Martyr," and "The 
Rogers Family of New York," as well as the pedigree of the Clinton 

Later came his "Early History of Hempstead," and his " Shipwrights, 
Fishermen, etc." No matter what his theme, he followed Sir Walter 
Scott's rule for writing, namely, " Be interesting." He did not depart 
from it while writing of fishermen who lived and died hundreds of years 
ago, or while sketching the life of his friend, Edwin R. Purple. 

Between 1880 and 1888 he published sketches of the Rev. John 
Moore, Capt. John Seaman, the Clinton Family, the Christopher Youngs 
Family, and the Moore Family of Southold, including his first American 
ancestor, Thomas Moore. This latter paper has been freely used in the 
present memoir. 

These are far from being all his exceedingly interesting and valuable 
contributions to the Record ; but if these only were printed in the style 
of Bancroft's historical works they would fill volumes. 

He took a prominent part, in the summer of 1890, in the worthy cele- 
bration of the two hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the formation of 
the town and church of Southold. The chief addresses then made gave 
expression to the immense learning and the splendid genius of the Rev. 
Richard S. Storrs, D.D., LL.D., and of Charles B. Moore, Esq. These 
addresses, with a letter from Benjamin Harrison, President of the United 
States, are the chief parts of the handsome octavo volume which records 
the celebration. 

In 1839 Frances Maria, daughter of John H. Jone?, of Cold Spring 
Harbor, Long Island, became the wife of Mr. Moore. They celebrated 
their golden wedding in 18S9. She died two years later. Two daugh- 
ters survive them. One is the wife of Theophylact B. Bleecker, Esq., of 
New York. 

Early in 1865 Mr. and Mrs. Moore visited Europe for health, busi- 
ness, and pleasure, and all the purposes of the visit were attained. 

The death of Mr. Moore at his home in New York, December n, 
1893, caused the expression of high esteem and regard from many sources 
and organizations. The following from The Havens' Relief Fund So- 
ciety may be presented in illustration : '■'■Resolved, that it is with deep 
regret that we learn of the death of Charles B. Moore, one of the original 
incorporators of this Society." "Endowed with a remarkably clear and 
penetrating intellect, Mr. Moore invariably devoted his powers to the 
furtherance of the interests of justice and equity, and in public affairs to 
disinterested promotion of the public weal. His private life was pure, 
unselfish, and irreproachable. As friend and adviser he was loyal and 
sympathetic, and every trust undertaken by him was discharged as a 
sacred duty." 

At his funeral his home was filled with a choice and deeply sympathetic 
company. The service of the Protestant Episcopal Church was read by 
the Rev. William J. Seabury. The interment was made at Cold Spring 
Harbor, by the side of the grave of Mrs. Moore.

1894. I King's [now Columbia) College. j o 2 



By Richard H. Greene. 
Read at a meeting of the Society, April 13, 1894. 

I am asked to fill in a gap to-night, and, casting about for a subject, I 
concluded, like everything else, to be in the fashion I should call it 
Columbian. But as things are now traced to their origin I will ask you 
to help me bring to light some of the beginnings of old King's College in 
New York. 

The college at Cambridge had stood for a century, and Yale for half 
a century, when this colony raised the money for "encouragement of 
learning and founding a college " by a public lottery under an Act of the 
Legislature. King's College was not so favorably situated as Harvard 
and Yale, controlled by Independents, or even New Jersey, by Presby- 
terians ; those sects had thrown off Old-World domination in a Church 
without a bishop, and were preparing for a State without a king. King's 
College was under the English Church, and, even at the time of its 
foundation, mutterings of the storm were heard. The Church as a class 
adhered to the Crown, and while all New England was a unit for 
maintaining their rights, first by arguments then by armaments, New 
York was in doubt. The Presbyterians sided with the colonies ; the 
Dutch had prospered, yet they did not love the King, but they dreaded a 
conflict far more. Then there had been disputes of long standing with 
New England. It was the culture of old Harvard and the common 
schools of New England that first furnished the brains to unite the colonies 
and oppose the mother country. Nor were the other schools and colleges 
behind except in numbers. There were 56 signers of the Declaration of 
Independence ; all the 5 from Massachusetts held diplomas from Har- 
vard, besides 1 of Rhode Island's 2, and 1 of Connecticut's 4. Two 
of Connecticut's, and 2 of New York's delegation, with 1 from Georgia, 
were Yale men. Old Nassau had 1 in New Jersey and 1 in Pennsylvania. 
Her president was a signer, and another graduate of Edinburgh signed 
for Pennsylvania. The only signer from Maryland and 1 from New 
Jersey were from the University of Pennsylvania. Cambridge, England, 
lurnished 3. William and Mary claims 5 out of 7 from Virginia. So I 
count 25 graduates among the 56 signers. The presence of a large 
English army here from 1776 to 1783 closed the College in this city, and 
the same fact overawed many who under other circumstances might have 
been active with the colonists. 

The first class entered in 1754 and graduated in 1758. At the first 
examination for entrance the order was as follows : Samuel Verplanck, 
first; Rudolph Ritzema, second; Philip Van Cortlandt, third ; then 
Robert Bayard, who did not graduate ; Samuel Provost, fifth ; then two 
who did not graduate ; then Thomas Marston and Henry Cruger, and 
last, Joshua Bloomer. How often it happens that the first is last and the 
last first ! It is literally fulfilled here, for the printed catalogue of gradu- 
ates reads first Joshua Bloomer, and the last name is Samuel Verplanck. 

124 King's [now Columbia) College. „ [J u ' v > 

Two who graduated with them, Isaac Ogden and Joseph Reade, entered 

The presidency, during the entire period it existed under the Royal 
charter, which named the managers, was held by loyalists, one of whom, 
Myles Cooper, was forced to flee on that account in 1775 ; that was 
before the advent of the Royal troops. His successor was of the same 
kind, but was better supported. It was not until the city had been 
evacuated by the enemy that the College, which had been closed in 1776, 
was opened under a new charter, with its new name Columbia, and a 
president who had sympathized with the colonies in the struggle for 
independence — William Samuel Johnson, a graduate of Yale, formerly a 
Connecticut lieutenant-colonel and a member of the Stamp Act Congress. 
The first class graduated seven men, some of whom had been, a portion 
of the time, at Princeton or Philadelphia. 


Joshua Bloomer, the first name on the catalogue of graduates of 1758, 
was captain in the provincial forces of the State from Westchester, raised 
to go against Canada in the campaign of 1759 5 he was promoted to be 
major, and participated the next year in that capacity. He then became 
a merchant in New York, but gave it up in 1765 to go to England for the 
purpose of studying divinity. He was appointed missionary at Jamaica, 
Long Island, which included Flushing and Newtown, May 23, 1769, at 
a salary of thirty pounds per annum. Small as that was he had to sue 
them before he got it, by a decision in his favor April, 1774, each to pay 
his own costs ; these amounted to eighty pounds, and Mrs. Tryon, the 
wife of the governor and judge, presented this to him before she returned 
to England. From the time he became rector till 1780 he kept no 
records but marriages ; after that only baptisms and marriages. 

In 1778 there was a lottery for raising seven hundred and eighty 
pounds ior the church ; a farm was purchased with the money, but the 
rector was not suited and it was offered for sale February, 1786 ; in this 
he is described as at Newtown. 

He had some trouble with the whigs at the beginning of the war, at 
Newtown. It is said he administered the sacraments to four or five male 
communicants, all the rest having been driven off or carried away prison- 
ers, but the next year the British came, and then the tables were changed 
and remained so until the end of the war. When the whigs directed him 
to omit the prayer for the king he had decided to close the church rather 
than comply, and this he carried out. 

In 1780 he had an assistant, Reverend John Sayre, but the support 
was withdrawn, and at the peace it ended. He received his A. M. prob- 
ably in course, and S. T. D., 1790. He is one of three the date of 
whose death is known at the College; the other four are not shown. He 
died June 23, 1790, aged 55, unmarried and intestate. He was univer- 
sally regretted, and was buried in the chancel of the church at Jamaica. 
He was of large, commanding figure. His parentage is unknown ; he 
may have been descended from Robert Bloomer, an early resident of 
Rye, constable in 1697, townsman twenty-nine years. What can the 
genealogist do with such a Melchisidec, " without father, without mother, 
without descent"? I have often consideredj " Biographical '' a trouble- 

1894.] King's {now Columbia) College. 12=; 

some addition to our name, for every biography should give the parents 
and children ; but if such as Bloomer were the rule only one life would 
comprise it and one generation would end it. His record in the Alumni 
Catalogue is comprised in nine words. Does he deserve more when the 
only record he kept through his ministry was the marriages, but did not 
get married himself? "It is not good for man to be alone," and for 
many reasons. 

Isaac Ogden did not enter at the first examination, but joined the 
class later. His name is second in the general catalogue, which makes 
him member of the Provincial Congress, New Jersey, 1755, which is im- 
possible unless he was a colonial official before he went to college. 

The line of descent in this case can be given. John Ogden was in 
Stamford, Connecticut, 1641. He and his brother, 1642, contracted with 
Governor Kieft, of New York, to build a stone church ; was a patentee of 
Hempstead, Long Island, 1644 ; resident of Southampton, 1651 ; chosen 
assistant 1656-60 ; named in the royal charter of 1662 and elected assist- 
ant again that year, but removed to New Jersey where he made large 
purchases with Governor Carteret ; was representative for Elizabethtown 
in the first assembly of the colony, 1668, and died, 1681. 

David, his son, married Elizabeth (Swayne), widow of Josiah Ward, and 
daughter of Lieutenant Samuel Swayne, both of Branford, Connecticut, 
and original settlers of Newark, New Jersey. 

Their son was Colonel Josiah Ogden (1 680-1 763); he was member New 
Jersey Provincial Congress, 1716, 1721 and 1738, and died May 16, 1763, 
cet. 83. David, his eldest son (1707-98), graduated at Yale, 1728, mar- 
ried Gertrude, daughter of Abraham Gouverneur, and granddaughter of 
Jacob Leisler (who was executed). He read law in New York city, settled 
in Newark, New Jersey, and was considered the head of the profession in that 
colony. He was member of the King's Council, 1 75 1 , soon after Judge 
Superior Court and Judge Supreme Court, 1772-77 ; at that time he was 
forced to seek protection from the British in New York. In 1779 he be- 
came a member of the Board of Refugees here. He drew a plan for royal 
government of the colonies, which is interesting, but which fortunately 
never materialized ; after the peace he went to England, where he repre- 
sented the New Jersey loyalists, and also received twenty thousand pounds 
sterling as compensation for his own losses. He returned in 1790 and set- 
tled at Whitestone, Queen's County. Long Island, where he died in 1798, 
?et. 93. He had eleven children ; two sons joined the colonists, one was 
United States District Attorney by appointment of Washington, one set- 
tled in Pennsylvania but has descendants here, one being the late distin- 
guished David B. Ogden of our bar. Josiah Ogden Hoffman, Attorney- 
General, New York, was also a grandson. He had also three sons who 
were loyal to the King ; one was Isaac Ogden (David's third child), the 
graduate of the earliest class at King's College. After graduation he 
went to New York as a refugee from Newark. His letters to Galloway, 
the Pennslyvania loyalist at London, show his feelings towards the rebels, 
Presbyterians, and Governor Livingston. He married first, Mary, daugh- 
ter of Reverend Isaac Brown, and second, Sarah Hanson. He went to 
England when the war was over, and subsequently to Canada where he was 
chosen Judge of the Supreme Court and held that office till his death. 
He left descendants, of whom Peter became Governor in the service of 
the North Pacific Company.

Samuel Provost was the third in the class. I need do no more than 
allude to him, for one of our number has published the genealogy of 
this family. Our president has given us the biography of the individual, 
and his fine features adorn the Society's publication as a frontispiece. 
The College was not ignorant of the facts and dates concerning the first 
bishop of New York, and the record they publish is as follows : 
"Samuel Provost (Rev.), A.M., A.B.. St. Peter's College, Cambridge 
University, England, 1765 ; S. T. D., University of Pennsylvania, 1786 ; 
Regent University, New York State, 1 784—1 787 ; trustee (College), 1 787— 
1S01 ; chairman of board, 1 795-1 801 ; bishop Protestant Episcopal 
Church, New York, 1 787—1 815 ; died 1815, Bet. 73." He was born in 
New York city, February 26, 1742. Though educated at King's here, 
and Cambridge, England, ordained both as deacon and priest abroad, 
he came back to be a steadfast adherent of the rights of the colonists. 
Such men need no biographer. I am reminded of the remarks concern- 
ing James Boswell and Dr. Johnson. There the subject and the 
biographer were each fortunate in the association with the other. My 
part to-night is not to add to achieved glory, but to rescue from oblivion 
what in the hurry and trouble of eventful times was lost or forgotten. I 
may, however, add, of his four children two were girls : Susanna Eliza- 
beth, married George Rapalje, Columbia, 1791, and Maria, married 
Cadwalader D. Colden, Mayor, M.C., etc. ; John, the youngest son, died 
early. These lines, I think, are extinct, but Benjamin Bousfield, the 
third child, left numerous descendants. 

Joseph Reade. — I am not surprised that the College knows so little of 
him, and I am not prepared to say much with certainty. Sir William 
Johnson, writing to the Earl of Hillsborough, 1771, speaks of the death 
of Joseph Reade, Esq., one of his majesty's council ; that man was 
councillor, 1764 to 1771, when he died. He may be the vestryman of 
Trinity Church. I hardly think he was brother of John, owner of the 
point called Reade Hook, which gave the name to the town. Reade 
Street is named from the same family. I am doubtful if he was Master 
in Chancery in New Jersey, as the catalogue siates ; more likely the 
"attorney, late of New York, now of Westchester, " who, according to D. 
W. de Peyster's affidavit, was " a great Tory ;" if so he did not die in 1771, 
for that was September 10, 1776, then he could not be the King's 
councillor. He might have been arrested by Sons of Liberty for dis- 
loyalty and sent to Connecticut. There is so much of record about Joseph 
Read, born. Trenton, New Jersey, 1 74 1 , who graduated at Princeton, 
1757, admitted to bar, secretary New Jersey, and Surrogate of the Province, 
and afterwards identified with Pennsylvania, member of Continental Con- 
gress, and general in the Revolution. This man was as prominent as our 
man was hidden. We may get a clew, but have not yet. Joseph Read, 
named as a governor in the charter, is probably a relation, also Joseph, 
whose daughter Sarah married James, son of Abraham de Peyster, in 
1748. These may be the same person and the councillor. 

Rudolphus Ritzema was born in Cullum, East Friesland, Holland ; his 
father, with whom he came to the colony, was born in the same place 
about 1708, and came in response to a call of the Dutch Church in New 
Amsterdam, 1744 ; his wife, Hilletje Dyckstra, and three children accom- 
panied him. Rudolphus was the eldest. Alida, his sister, was born 
February 19, 1742 ; the other child was also a daughter. The Reverend

Johannes Ritzema was senior minister of the Reformed Church, 1744-84, 
and one of the original trustees of the College. He removed to Kinder- 
hook after retiring from his charge and was there until his death, April 
7, 1794, aged 86; his wife had died February 5, 1793, aged 85. After 
he graduated Rudolphus was sent to Holland to study divinity, but he 
gave up his studies and enlisted in a grenadier regiment of Frederick the 
Great, of Prussia, who was in the seven years' war against Austria and the 
other powers, a war in which people suffered greatly, but from which 
the nation gained a first rank. In it Frederick II. won glory at every 
turn. Rudolphus Ritzema is said to have been tall and commanding in 
appearance. Everyone knows the partiality of Frederick for such soldiers 
in his ranks. The peace of Hubertsberg in 1762 ended the campaign, 
and his regiment was disbanded. It is probable he immediately returned 
to this country and took up the study of the law. He married Annie 
Porter and had a family. Four sons survived him, and his descendants 
are said to be numerous. His sister, Alida Ritzema, mentioned before, 
married Nicholas Bogart, who had been married before to Maria Quick, 
and had eight children, of whom two sons lost their lives in the patriot 
army of the Revolution. Nicholas and Aiida had thirteen children. 
They lived on the west side of Broadway, between Cedar and Liberty 
Streets. When the Asia fired on the city a shot passed through this 
house above the bed where she was lying with her infant Cornelius 
Bogart. Dominie Ritzema had two other children : Marie Wilhelmina, 
born in Holland 1745, married Thomas Andrew Hoog and left descend- 
ants ; his other son, David, born after reaching this city in 1751, died 
in infancy. He had been admitted to the bar when the conflict with 
the mother country began ; he was early and active among the Sons of 
Liberty. In 1775 he commanded a fusileer company, which escorted the 
New England delegates on their passage through New York to the Con- 
tinental Congress. He was lieutenant-culonel under General Richard 
Montgomery in the Canada campaign, and I have seen the statement 
that he behaved badly under fire. His promotion had followed from his 
experience in Frederick's army ; he was also one of the committee of 
one hundred — the citizens' committee for the public defence. 

When four regiments were authorized, June 30, 1775, the first was 
officered by Alexander McDougall, Colonel Rudolphus Ritzema was 
lieutenant-colonel, and Hermon Zedwitz was the first major. Mc- 
Dougall was on duty from the first gathering of the Sons of Liberty till 
the organization of the Order of the Cincinnati when the war ended. 
Zedwitz on the contrary, like Ritzema, was a traitor. After the fall of 
St. John's, Ritzema commanded the Third Regiment New York line. 
At White Plains, September, 1776, he was commanding the regiment 
with Frederick Weissenfels, who was first captain in June, 1775, as lieu- 

Here is what Philip Van Cortlandt says, speaking of the White 
Plains battle and this regiment. It " was engaged under Lieutenant- 
Colonel Weissenfels, Colonel Ritzema being absent four or five miles in 
the rear, either from cowardice or disaffection, perhaps both, for he 
shortly after discharged many of the men enlisted for the war, and 
absconded himself, going to the enemy at New York." That is all 
true, but " shortly after " may not give the correct idea. Ritzema was 
court-martialled, and little was proven ; but subsequently he was tried 

128 King's {now Columbia) College. [J u b r > 

again, convicted and dismissed. I think this was in 1778 and that he had 
absconded before that. He joined the enemy in New York, was author- 
ized to raise a regiment, and subsequently received half pay, a sum of 
money, and land in Nova Scotia from the King. Much has been at- 
tempted in the way of patching up his reputation, but without success. 
After he went to England he lived at York, and if any one is inclined to 
disbelieve his treason to the colonies, here is the first clause of his last 
will and testament, dated April 24, 1803 : 

" I, Rodolphus Ritzema, of the city of Exeter, late lieutenant-colonel 
commandant in his majestie's provincials in North America," etc. 

He died at Harcross and was buried at Kent in May, 1803. 

Philip Van Corilandt. — The pedigree of this family is well known. 
The first, Steven, lived at Courtlandl, in South Holland. His son, 
Oloff Stevenson, or Oloff Stevens van Kortlandt, as he signed his name 
later, was born there about 1683. He was in the employ of the Dutch 
West India Company, and emigrated to New Amsterdam, where he 
built a brewery and prospered. In 1649 ne commanded the train 
bands; was schepen 1654, burgomaster 1655; had seven children. 
Stephen, the eldest, born May 7, 1643, married Gertrude Schuyler; 
major 1677, member of the council and colonel of militia ; he had four- 
teen children. Philip, born August 9, 1683, was the third son ; he 
married, in 1709-10, Catharine de Peyster ; was councillor of the Prov- 
ince under Governor Montgomerie, until his death, August 21, 1746 ; 
they had six children. Stephen, born October 26, 17 10, married, 1738, 
Mary Walton Ricketts ; of their three children the eldest was Philip, the 
King's College graduate, who was born November 10, 1739; married 
Catharine, daughter of Jacob Ogden of New Jersey. They had twenty- 
three children. He is not to be confused with his uncle of similar name, 
the patriot colonel, who became the ancestor of the Van Cortlandts of 
Cortlandt Manor. He entered the British army as major of the Third 
Battalion, New Jersey Loyal Volunteers. After the war his estates were 
confiscated and he went to England. He died May 1, 1814, and was 
buried at Harlsham, where a mural monument is erected. His sons 
received commissions in the English army. 

Samuel Verplanck was born in New York city, September 19, 1739 ; 
his lather died when he was but 12 years old; he entered Kings 1754, 
the first name on the list of candidates, and was admitted at the first 
examination. At his graduation he was sent to his uncle, Daniel 
Crommelin of Amsterdam, Holland. In his family he lived, and 
married his daughter Judith, who was consequently his cousin, April 26, 
1 76 1. He was in the banking house of his uncle and father-in-law 
until 1763, when he returned to this city, to the Wall Street house, where 
his father had resided, just east of the City Hall, the site of the United 
States Bank and United States Assay Office. He began banking in New 
York, was one of the founders of the Chamber of Commerce 1768, a 
governor of the college 1770. His uncle, Philip Verplanck, member of 
the Legislature from Cortlandt Manor, had been named in the charter, 
and was a governor 1754 till his death, October 13, 1771. He was a 
younger brother of Samuel's grandfather. I am doubtful if he was 
whig or loyal. If he was the member of the Committee of Safety, New 
York, 1775, it does not prove anything, especially as his name disappears 
that year. Then, again, if he was a loyalist (as some say) there was no

Act of Forfeiture. Many patriots in '75 took the oath after the enemy 
occupied New York and Long Island in 1776. His wife Judith died 
September, 1803, leaving one son, Daniel Crommelin Verplanck, who 
was born March 19, 1762 ; Columbia College, 17SS ; he married 
Elizabeth, the daughter of the first president, William Samuel Johnson. 
In the next generation the distinguished Gulian Crommelin Verplanck, 
one of the best known of New Yorkers, entered Columbia at 11 years and 
graduated 1801. We are fortunate in having two of this family among 
our members. 

This family is descended from Abraham Isaacsen or Abram Planck, as 
he signed himself on the deed of Paulus Hook 1638 ; his son Gulian, 
born January 1, 1637, married June 20, 1668, Hendritje VVessels ; his 
eldest child, Samuel, born December, 1669, married Anantje Bayard. 
His youngest child Gulian, born May 31, 1698, who married Mary 
Crommelin, daughter of Charles of Amsterdam, was the father of the 

Samuel Verplanck removed to Fishkill, New York, 1804, to the house 
of his son, called " Mount Gulian," where the Order of the Cincinnati 
had been organized in 1783. There Samuel died June 27, 1820, in his 
8 1 st year. 

If I mark Verplanck doubtful, then we have 5 loyalists, and Bishop 
Provost alone as a known patriot, in the first class which graduated at 
King's College. 


Efenelus Townsend was born at Cedar Swamp, near Oyster Bay, L. I., 
in April, 1742, received A. M. in course ; married Lucy Beach, September 
10, 1769. Was ordained 1767, in the Church of England, by the Bishop 
of London. His license is dated December 21, 1767. He was son of 
Micajah, born 1699, inherited land at Cedar Swamp, L. I., bought of the 
Indians by his ancestor Henry. Micajah was a whig. Married April 23, 
1732, Elizabeth Piatt, who died May 16, 1759, and he married 2d 
December, 1760, Meribah, daughter Joshua Townsend, who died soon, 
and he then married Anne, widow Geo. Frost. He died November 9, 
1 781. His children by the first wife were Piatt, Epenetus, Jotham and 
Micah. This family came from Norwich, Norfolk County, England. 
Henry, the emigrant, got a patent for Flushing from Governor Kieft, 
afterwards settled at Oyster Bay, where he got a mill grant ; his son John 
inherited this, and was known as John at the Mil!. He married Esther 
Smith, and died March 9, 1705. His son was Micajah above. Epenetus 
was inducted over the church at Salem, N. Y., May 29, 1768. He was 
loyal to the Crown and was arrested more than once, and was ordered to 
leave when he refused allegiance to the colony. He left the country in 
1779, bound for Nova Scotia, but never arrived, for he and his entire 
family were lost on the passage. His children were Epenetus, born 
October 31, 1770 ; Lucy, born November 3, 1772 ; Micajah and John, 
twins, born June 28, 1775. 

William Hanna was educated at Nottingham, Md., then assistant at 
school in Pequea, Pa., graduated at Kings 1759, A. M. 1765. Licensed 
to preach by the Litchfield, Conn., Presbytery, May 28, 1760; became 
pastor of 1st Presbyterian Church, Albany, N. Y., 1763. He received 

j -20 King's {now Columbia) College. [J u ^7> 

an honorary A. M. from Yale, 1768. In 1765 his church had asked his 
dismission, because he had accepted a civil office from the Government. 
In May, 1767, he writes Sir William Johnson that he has attended at Mr. 
Silvester's office in Albany to learn the formalities and proceedings of the 
courts and got his license. Then he went to Schenectady to settle. He 
did not succeed at the bar, and 1771 we hear of him applying to be 
admitted to orders in the Church of England. Sir William Johnson 
presented his claims to Dr. Auchmuty, who replied he had informed 
himself about the gentleman ; "his moral character formerly was good, 
but since he has commenced law it is altered." Then advises that 
he get recommendations to Lord Baltimore, who can provide for him at 
a distance from his old friends the Dissenters, &c. Then he went 
to Baltimore, was furnished letters to Colonel Washington, and went to 
Virginia. There his reception was favorable. He went thence to 
England, and the Bishop of London ordained him June i4 5 1772. 
Fifteen months later Rev. William Andrews writes from Williamsburg, 
Virginia : " He still remains unprovided,*" and adds, "his character is 
not known here, nor have I been so uncharitable as to acquaint the 
clergy with it. It is his want of powers to please that has hitherto been 
the obstacle to success." Again he disappears, and leaves no clue to his 


Samuel Bayard, Jr., born in 1740, married Catharine Van Home, 
April 26, 1778, Deputy Secretary of the colony of New York, before the 
Revolution, Deputy Register of the Ordinary and Prerogative Court, July, 
1774. He sent a memorial to the King in behalf of himself and others, 
1774. After General Charles Lee took command at New York, 1776, 
Samuel was made a prisoner under guard at the house of Nicholas 
Bayard. He entered the service of the Crown and was commissioned 
February 9, 1 781, major in the King's Orange Rangers. He died in 
1816, aged 76. 

Nicholas Bayard, the ancestor, came with Stuyvesant. His uncle was 
prominent in the colony, and held many high offices. He was a 
member of the Governor's council, and when Leisler came into power 
he was banished. He returned later, was reinstated in office, and 
helped to bring Leisler to the scaffold 1702. Afterwards the adherents of 
Leisler had Bayard condemned to death for treason, but by a change in 
the political rulers he escaped. He died leaving a widow, Judy, and son 
Samuel, married to Margaret, daughter of Stephanus Van Cortlandt, who 
inherited his large property, and died September, 1745. His children, 
besides seven daughters, were Nicholas, who married a daughter of Peter 
V. B. Livingston, and Samuel, the graduate's father. He died in 1784. 
Samuel went to Nova Scotia, and his estates were confiscated. 

Anthony Hoffman, son of Colonel Martinus, born August 1, 1739, 
married Mary Rutgers of New York, daughter of Harman. Her two 
sisters married Jacob Le Roy, her brother's partner ; she was, therefore, 
great-aunt of Mrs. Daniel Webster. Their daughter, Eliza Hoffman, 
married her kinsman. Nicholas G. Rutgers, whom she survived. They 
had no children. She lived in New Brunswick, N. J. Colonel Martin 
Hoffman resided at Red Hook, and was delegate to the New York

Provincial Congress 1775—6—7. Anthony received his master's degree, and 
was Regent New York University 1784-87. He was elected to the New 
York Legislature 1783. 

Philip Livingston, son of Peter Van Brugh, who was brother of Philip 
Livingston, the signer of the Declaration of Independence, was born 
November 3, 1740 ; was secretary to Sir Henry Moore, Governor of New 
York. His sympathies were with the mother country, and after the war 
he went to England and remained many years. After he returned he 
married in New York, October 7, 1790, Cornelia, daughter of Daniel 
Van Home. He was trustee 1797-1806, and died in 1810, leaving four 
sons : i. Peter Van Brugh, U. S. Charge d'Affaires to Ecuador 1848 ; ii. 
Philip, died unmarried ; iii. Richard, U. S. N. , unmarried ; iv. Charles 
Ludlow, Speaker New York Legislature, 1832-3 ; senator 1834-7. 

John Marston was born New York, December 5, 1740. He was 
admitted at the first examination in 1754, when only 13, but did not 
remain. He graduated with the class of 1760 ; this and the taking of 
his second degree is all the catalogue tells us of him. He was son of 
Nathaniel Marston, a governor of the College named in the charter, a 
wealthy merchant, and Mary CosJ? or Crooks his wife. His father, 
Nathaniel, born New York March 27, 1704, was a vestryman of Trinity 
Church 1731 ; warden 1770. He owned the privateer Peggy in the 
French War, 1756 ; and bought a farm in Harlem, which he left to 
his sons, Thomas and John. The latter was the graduate. He married 
Rachel Laurence of Philadelphia, June 7, 1768. Thomas married 1759 
Cornelia, sister of Anthony and Leonard Lispenard, in the next 
succeeding class. Their eldest sister, Margaret, had married the Hon. 
Philip Philips ; and an older brother, Nathaniel, had a daughter, who 
married Captain Fred Philipse of the British army. The brothers, 
Thomas, who was the 3d child, and John, who was the 6th, are in some 
doubt as to their position on the question of loyalty to England. They 
were both, however, members of the committee of 100 in New York city, 
May, 1775. John and Rachel had 5 children : i. Mary, born November 
8, 1768, married ^Thomas White; ii. Nathaniel, born May 21, 1770; he 
went to England ; iii. Rachel, born October 3, 1771 ; iv. Thomas, born 
October 2, 1773, never married ; v. John, born September 3, 1775, 
married Mrs. Margaret Yates, nee Winthrop, the only family which left 
descendants of the name in this country, the other brother, who married, 
having gone abroad. This family traces back to Nathaniel of Leicester, 
England, born about 1600, emigrated to Long Island 1639, bringing a 
son, John, who married about 1657 Anna Legg. Their son Nathan- 
iel, born at Flushing or New York 1665, was an original vestryman of 
Trinity Church, named in the charter 1697, and active till 1 73 1 . His 
wife was Margaret Hardenbrook. He died in 1737. His son Nathaniel 
was the grandfather of John, as shown above. 

Robert Walls, son of Hon. John, member of King's Council (175 7— 
1775) and Ann de Lancey, was born August 23, 1743 ; married Mary 
Alexander, daughter of William, Lord Sterling. John (King's 1766) 
was his brother. Their descent was from Robert, who married Mary, 
daughter of Wm. Nicoll of Long Island, and lived at Rose Hill, through 
his son John, born New York 1715, married 1742 Ann de Lancey. He 
went to England 1779. His property was confiscated, but afterwards 
was conveyed to his sons Robert and John, the graduates. Pie died in

Wales aged 59, 1789. Besides these he had a son Stephen and four 
daughters. Robert lived in New York, and his name was in the 
directory in 1790, but afterwards removed to Philadelphia, and died there. 
The children of Robert and Mary Alexander Watts were : i. Sarah Maria, 
married twice, but died without issue ; ii. Anne, born January 22, 1780, 
married John Watts Kearney, had eleven children ; iii. Catharine, married 
Henry, son of Thomas Barclay (King's 1772), no children ; iv. Robert, 
born September 19, 1784 (Columbia 1803), no children ; v. John, born

Isaac Wilkins was born in the year 1741 in Jamaica, W. I. After 
graduation he was elected to the New York Assembly 1772-75, from 
Borough of Westchester. In 1775 he went to England ; returned in 
1776 and settled in Long Island. He explained his position in a letter 
in 1775 as follows : " I leave America and every endearing connection, 
because I will not raise my hand against my sovereign, nor will I draw 
my sword against my country. When I can conscientiously draw it in 
her favor, my life shall be cheerfully devoted to her service." He was 
banished, his writings dressed in tar and buzzard feathers and burned, and 
he retired to Shelburne, Nova Scotia. In the year 1798 he returned, was 
ordained deacon and settled over St. Peter's parish in Westchester county, 
1799, where he continued until his death. Great Britain gave him an 
annuity on account of his loyalty, of ^125. He died in Westchester, 
February 15, 1830, aged 89. 

1 761. 

Henry Van Dyck was a minister and loyalist. He left the country 
after the Peace, and in 1784, by act of New York legislature, was permitted 
to return. He died in 1804, aged 60. 

Anthony Lispenard^ son of Leonard who was a member of the Stamp 
Act Congress in 1765, the New York Provincial Congress in May, 1775, 
and called Colonel in the records of July and August ; and Eliza Rutgers, 
daughter of Anthony. Anthony Lispenard was the eldest son, baptized at 
Reformed Dutch Church, New York, December 8, 1742, merchant. He 
had extensive breweries also on the Greenwich Road, near Canal Street. 
He married his cousin, Sarah Barclay. They had a son, Anthony, whose 
portrait is in the Record, July, 1793, and Thomas, both bachelors. Their 
eldest son, Leonard, married Anna Dorothea, daughter of Theophylact 
Bache. Anthony died in 1806, aged 64. The political position of 
Anthony and his brother Leonard in the next class is alluded to by John 
Moore, in December, 1775, in notes of political sentiments of his social 
club, thus : " These brothers are of doubtful loyalty to the Crown, but are 
remaining quiet at New York." 

Henry Holland, the third and only other graduate of 1 76 1, "a lawyer 
and Master in Chancery in New York. Received degree of A. M." 
according to the catalogue ; but the Henry Holland, Master in Chancery, 
was appointed May 20, 1743, was baptized at Albany May 1, 1704, and 
was over 70 when the American army came to New York, when he left and 
soon died. I believe this Henry Holland was a merchant and not a 
lawyer. He lived at the south end of Staten Island. He was elected 
representative for Richmond County in the Legislature 1761-69, after 

1894.] Genealogical Notes on the Quackenbos Family, 


which, in consideration of the exertions of the members of St. Andrew's 
Church in his behalf, he presented the church with a bell and two silver 
collection plates. I think Henry, born 1704, was the Master, and the 
graduate was Henry, son of Edward the Mayor, who was born 1702. The 
the father of the former was Captain Henry from Ireland, who commanded 
garrison at Albany. Another of his sons, Edward, was Master and Mayor 
at Albany, and later in New York and one of the council. He died while 
Mayor of New York, November 10, 1756, before Henry entered college. 
His will, signed just before his death, gives " Henry not yet of age," 
a tract of land in Albany County. Henry Holland of the second 
generation of that family married Alida Beekman, 14 December, 1728.

May 26. At Oysterponds, on 20th ulto., Deborah, wife of Mr. Jeremiah

hood and conducting business in the most active stations,

April 13th. The meeting held on the evening of this day was very largely at- 
tended, and two very interesting and valuable papers were read : one by Richard 
Henry Greene, the Librarian of the Society, on " King's ( now Columbia) College, and 
its Earliest Alumni," and the other by Joseph O. Brown on "The Bermuda Islands 
and their Connection with New York.'' Both papers were listened to with much in- 
terest, and were requested for publication in the Record. Mr. Brown's paper was 
rendered pathetically notable by the fact that it was the last one written by him, his 
death occurring soon after, on the 5th of May. His loss will be deeply felt by the 
Society, for he was one of its earlier and most valued members. A short obituary 
sketch of him will be found in this number of the Record. At this meeting, George 
H. Comstock, of Mechanicsburg, Pa., and Mrs. 'William H. McCartney, of Wilkes- 
barre, Pa., were elected resident members of the Society.

troduced by Edmund Abdy Hurry, upon the death of Joseph O. Brown, the Society 
listened to an able paper by Marcius D. Raymond, of Tarrytown, N. Y. , on "Col. 
William Stephens Smith, Washington's aide-de-camp, and his wife, Abigail Adams, 
the daughter of President John Adams." This very interesting historical sketch will

Sunol's Statue of Columbus Unveiled. — Ten years ago, while walking in 
the Prado of Madrid, Gen. James Grant Wilson, President of the New York Genea- 
logical and Biographical Society, suddenly came upon the celebrated statue of Colum- 
bus by the Spanish sculptor, Sunol. The beauty and force of the work, and the 
evident genius of the artist, struck him at once, and he straightway resolved that New 
York city should have a statue of Columbus by the same artist. • . 

Saturday, May 12, was set. for the unveiling of that statue on the Mall in 
Central Park by the Vice-President of the United States, Adlai Ewing Stevenson. 
An elaborate programme was arranged for the event, in which a distinguished com- 
pany of men prominent in the diplomatic, political, social, and business worlds were 
invited to participate. Some of the party came on from Washington in a private car, 
and were entertained by the Committee at the Plaza Hotel. In their honor several 
elaborate entertainments were given. The party which arrived from Washington con- 
sisted of Vice-President and Mrs. Stevenson, Baron de Fava, the Italian Ambassador, 
and Baroness de Fava, and Senor Don E. de Muruaga, the Spanish Minister. The 
Committee of Arrangements comprised General Wilson, chairman ; Cornelius 
Vanderbilt, Henry G. Marquand, William R. Grace, James J. Goodwin, Thomas L. 
James, and Charles F. Cox> William Waldorf Astor was another of the com- 
mittee. At 1.30 the first event of the day was arranged to occur. This was a 
formal breakfast given by General and Mrs. Wilson to their guests from Wash- 
ington. Others bidden were Bishop Potter, Chauncey M. Depew, Gen. O. O. 
Howard. Admiral Gherardi, A. Lowden Snowden, ex-Minister to Spain ; Mrs. Julia 
Ward Howe, and the members of the committee. At 2.45 eight carriages were 
ordered to convey the party to Central Park. A platoon of twelve mounted police 
was assigned as escort to the distinguished guests. A stand had been built around 
the statue to accommodate General Wilson's party and other invited guests. Com- 
pletely swathed in flags the statue stood hidden from sight. A cord was so arranged 
that a slight pull from Vice-President Stevenson's hand would expose the whole to 
view in a moment. The artist's creation is of the .fame size as the Ward statue of 
Shakespeare, which stands about two hundred and fifty feet away in a direct line on 
the Mall. For the actual ceremony of unveiling, fixed for 3 o'clock, an elaborate 
programme was arranged as follows : 

General Wilson, President of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, will take 
the chair as presiding officer. 

Prayer, by Dr. Henry C. Potter, Bishop of New York. 

The Vice-President of the United States will unveil the statue and present it, on behalf of the 
subscribers, to the city of New York. 

Acceptance of the statue and response, by his Honor the Mayor of the city. 

A letter from the Duke of Veragua, the descendant of Columbus, will be read by Cornelius 
Vanderbilt, Esq. 

Address, by Baron de Fava, Ambassador from Italy. 

Poem, "A Mariner's Dream," by Mrs. Julia Ward Howe. 

Address, by Senor Don Muruaga, Minister from Spain. 

Oration, by the Hon. Chauncey M. Depew. 

General Wilson on taking the chair delivered a few remarks on the history of the 
statue. After the bishop's prayer the unveiling was to be done by Vice-President 
Stevenson. His remarks in the way of presenting it to the city were informal, as 
were Mayor Gilroy's in accepting it. Mr. Vanderbilt then read the letter from the 
Duke of Veragua, and also letters from Governor Flower and Robert C. Winthrop, 
of Massachusetts, the oldest honorary member of our Society. 

The statue, in whose honor all this was done, is the Spanish sculptor Jeronomo 
Sunol's best work. It was ordered by General Wilson after he had seen one in 
Madrid, by the same artist. While not alike in details, the Central Park statue is 

1894.] Notes and Queries. 141^ 

somewhat similar to the one in Madrid. Sunol considers it an improvement. The 
statue cost about $15,000, and was paid for by citizens of New York in $100 subscrip- 
tions. It is of bronze, in heroic size, and is mounted on a pedestal, harmonious in 
tone and design, which is the work of Napoleon Le Biun of this city. Columbus is 
represented in the act of landing and returning thanks to God for his safe voyage. 
Attired in his famous coat of scarlet, ermine edged, with a heavy chain and pendant 
about his neck, the discoverer is represented as holding the Spanish standard in the 
right hand, while the other is extended in invocation. On the ground at his right is 
a coil of rope, on which is poised a globe. The left leg is drawn back, while the 
right is advanced. The type of the head is the familiar, smooth-shaven one seen so 
often in pictures of Columbus, with the high, retreating brow, long hair, and clean- 
cut features. The lips are half open, as if to speak, and the eyes seem almost to 
express in cold metal the devout thanksgiving of the great discoverer. All who have 
been privileged to see the statue before its unveiling have unhesitatingly pronounced 
it a work of genius. Among Spanish sculptors Sunol has no equal. This statue 
is his latest and best piece of work. 

Mrs. Julia Ward Howe's spirited poem, " The Mariner's Dream," and Chauncey 
M. Depew's brilliant oration concluded the interesting exercises. W. 

Old Wills, New York, Kings, Queen's Counties. — In the search for an old 
will I have had an experience, the statement of which may be helpful to other persons. 

In the office of the Clerk of the Court of Appeals, at Albany, is an index of wills, 
labeled " 1662 to 1783," "Secretary's Office." Under the letter H, which I was exam- 
ining, were wills grouped under certain years specified, from 1662 to 1776, and after 
them a group of seven without any date, and in the margin of that group appeared 
the words " Not recorded." One of the seven is identified as of Jan. 10, 1715. Of 
this will more is stated below. 

In the same office is an index labeled "Court of Probate," "Index of Wills." 
Under the letter H. extending from 1679-80 to 1799, is a will mentioned, of which the 
original is still in that office ; and yet it is recorded in the office of the Surrogate of 
the County of New York, probably from an authenticated copy. And the index led up 
to an authenticated copy of another will, of which also there is a record in New York. 

There is a third book consisting of a list of wills, etc., not arranged alphabetically 
nor chronologically ; over two hundred pages, twenty-five items to the page, over five 
thousand wills. The entries in the book begin as follows : " A List of Wills, Receipts 
for Wills, Administration Bonds, Inventories, etc., relative to the Southern District 
of the State of New York, heretofore filed in the Probate Office of the said State, 
delivered by the Judge of Probate thereof to the Surrogate of the City and County of 
New York, in pursuance of an Act of the Legislature passed the Thirtieth day of 
March, 1799. as per receipt subscribed by the said Surrogate at the end hereof." 
Then follows a specification of the wills, and of a book described as follows : " A 
book containing a List of Wills proved in the Prerogative Office in the City of New 
York, begun in the year 1759, and ending in the year 1763." Then follows the receipt, 
without date, signed by the Surrogate, who elsewhere appears to have been in office 
in 1 801, and again at a later date, in the terms following : " New York Surrogate's 
Office, ss. Received from Leonard Gansevoort, Esq., Judge of the Court of Probate 
of the State of New York, all the Wills, Receipts for Wills, Inventories, and part of 
the Administration Bonds belonging to the Southern District of the State, agreeably 
to the preceding entry made thereof. Sylvanus Miller." 

In this " List" is mentioned the Will of 171 5, referred to above ; also a Will of 
Feb. 3, 1706-7, which does not appear in either of the indices mentioned above, 
unless it be the one in the index first named, as proven in 1742, which seems incredi 
ble. Neither of these wills is to be found in the index in the Surrogate's office, New 
York. Nor did a search, will by will, in the Libers 7 and 8, which should have in- 
cluded them, bring them to light ; nor did a search among the bundles of original 
wills have any better result. The Surrogate of New York acknowledged receipt of 
them, but they are not to be found. 

Resort was then had to the office of the Registrar of Deeds, with no better 
result. Then to the County Clerk's office, where two books of wills, without indices, 
were found, beginning with 17S7 ; and a third book in another room, the particulars 
of which I did not note. 

Mr. Barbour, of the office of the Clerk of the Court of Appeals; Messrs. Wash- 
burn and Marsac of the Surrogate's office, and Messrs. Sucully and Whalen of the 
County Clerk's office, gave every facility. R. w.

Searing. — In a burial place on the farm of the late David Williams, of Searing- 
town, Queens Co., L. I., there is a nicely lettered memorial stone, in a good state of 
preservation, having on it this inscription :

1747, in Philadelphia. {Vide Sparks' Franklin, p. 146, for details.) 

No mention is made, in either issue, of the color of the silks upon which these 
devices were painted. Can any reader of the Record put me in the way of finding

Cotheal. — Alexander Isaac Cotheal was born in the city of New York, on the 
5th of November, 1804, of an ancient family, the records of which run back as 
far as 1353. Educated at the Broad Street Academy and at Pickett's school, he 
manifested a great aptitude for mathematics and languages, as well as an earnest 
interest in mechanical pursuits. Strangely enough, he declined to enter Columbia 
College, but associated himself with the shipping house of his father and uncle as the 
Spanish and French correspondent of the firm, of which he became a partner in 1S36. 
His marvelous interest in the Arabic language owes its origin to the presence of the 
Arab ship " Sultanee, " which lay in the harbor of New York in 1840, and to which 
he made frequent visits. During his sojourn in Zanzibar and Mozambique, whither 
he went in 1851, to establish a trading factory, he further perfected himself in the 
study of Oriental tongues. In 1S52 he went to Nicaragua, and in 1877 was ap- 
pointed Consul-General to that State, where he interested himself in its ethnology, 
and especially in the study of the language of the Mosquito Indians, the results of 
which study were printed in the Transactions of the American Ethnological Society 
in 1S4S. He also devised and prepared a system of coinage for the State of Nicara- 

In 1842, chiefly by his zeal and enthusiasm, the " American Ethnological 
Society " was instituted, and of the original thirteen members he was the sole sur- 
vivor. Its meetings were held at his hospitable residence, and for many years he was 
its Treasurer. In 1872 he was elected as first Vice-President, and on the 13th of 
February, 1S74, he became its President, filling the office continuously for twenty 
years, and occupying its chair till the day of his decease. 

He was also a moving spirit in the " American Oriental Society," devoting him 
self especially to the study of Arabic and cognate languages, the fruits of which 
remain in his translation of the rare Arabic text of " Attaff the Generous." 

Although weak in body from an accident that befell him in childhood, and bent with 
age, he was strong and vigorous in mind, and spent the later years of his life in his 
well-stored library, in patient research and quiet study, until in the ripeness of years 
he passed from the toils of a well-spent life to his eternal rest on the 25th of Febru- 
ary, 1894, the last man of his race who bore the name of Cotheal. 

He was for several years Treasurer of the New York Genealogical and Biographi- 
cal Society, having been elected a member in 1878. 

Although possessed of an unusual wealth of learning on many subjects, he was 
always modest and retiring, ready to put his knowledge at the service of anyone who 
required it. He will live in memory as the model of an earnest and enthusiastic 
scholar, as well as of an honorable Christian gentleman. 


King. — David King, Esq., of Newport, R.I., died in Washington, D.C., 8 March, 
1894, after a brief illness. Mr. King was born in Newport, in 1840, and was son of 
Dr. David King, a distinguished physician of that place, whose father was Dr. David 
King, of Raynham, Mass. 

148 Book Notices. [J u 'y> 

The earliest known ancestor of the family in this country was Lieut. Philip King, 
of Taunton, Mass. (now Raynham), who was Representative in 1695 and Justice of 
the Peace. Through this Philip 1 King, whose wife was Judith, daughter of the Rev. 
William Whitman, the descent of David King, deceased, may be traced in the 
line of John- and Alice (Dean) King, of Taunton, David 3 and Rebecca (Dean) King, 
of Taunton, Lieut. Job 4 and Zippora (Williams) King, of Taunton, Dr. David 5 and 
Ann (Gordon) King, of Raynham, and Dr. David 6 and Sarah (Wheaton) King, of 

This last-mentioned gentleman's younger son was David 7 King of Newport, and 
the subject of this obituary. 

He entered Harvard University in 1S57, but left before finishing his course, and 
went to China in 1859, where he became a partner in the firm of Russell & Co., 
and remained there until 1872. Mr. King was Assistant Commissioner of the United 
States to the Paris Exposition in 1889, and held other positions of trust. He 
resided in Washington during part of each year, but was much interested in the 
prosperity of Newport, where he owned a summer home. He was a Governor of the 
Newport Casino, a Trustee of the Newport Hospital, and a Director of the Redwood 

Mr. King was twice married, first to Miss Helen Van Cortlandt Morris, daughter 
of Richard Lewis Morris, Esq., of Pelham, N. Y., and second to Miss Ella Rives, 
daughter of Francis R. Rives, Esq., of New Hamburgh, N. Y. 

Mr. King's widow and two children, a son and a daughter, survive him. His will, 
dated 19 July, 1878, mentions his daughter, Maud Gwendolen, his brother William 
De Hon King, and four sisters, Mrs. William H. Birckhead, Ann King, Mrs. S. W. 
Pomeroy, and Georgiana Gordon King. 

The name of the testator's son (Philip) does not appear in the will, as he was not 
born when the document was executed. 

Mr. King was buried in Newport. r. k. 

Brown. — Joseph Jauncey Outerbridge Brown was the son of Erastus Fitch 
Brown and Sarah Jauncey Ketchum, and was born in Bermuda, October 30, 1827. 
At the age of thirteen he came to New York and entered the office of the law firm of 
Adriance and Ketchum, with whom he remained until he began business for himself 
in April, 186S. He directed his attention especially to real estate, concerning which 
his opinion was constantly sought by members of the legal profession and others. 
There are few authorities on titles to New York property, and particularly to that 
situated on the northern half of Manhattan Island, whose opinions were more re- 
spected and acquiesced in than those of Mr. Brown. His genial countenance will 
long be remembered at his old-fashioned law office in Nassau Street. His last public 
appearance was on April 15, when he delivered an admirable address before the New 
York Genealogical and Biographical Society on " The Bermuda Islands and their Con- 
nection with New York."' He died suddenly of neuralgia of the heart at his home on 
upper Fifth Avenue, May 5, 1894, and was buried at Colchester, Conn. Mr. Brown was 
among the oldest surviving members of our Society, having been elected in 1872, and 
also among those most deeply interested in its welfare. He was for several years 
secretary of the Society, and also served as librarian and as trusstee. He married 
Miss Parsons, of Colchester, who, with four children, still survives him. w. 


The Treat Family : A Genealogy of Trott, Tratt and Treat for fifteen genera-

than fifteen hundred families in America, with illustrations, autographs, and a map of 
Somersetshire. By John Harvey Treat, A. M., Salem, Mass. Press Publishing Com- 
pany, 1893, pp. 637. 

The author, who is a distinguished descendant of the Rev. Samuel Treat, of East- 
ham, Mass., the eldest son of Gov. Robert Treat of Connecticut, has executed a 


Book Notices. \ a q 

really magnificent work — a monument of care, patience and ability. It must rank 
among, if not with, the first of American genealogies. It was designed at first by the 
author to write up simply his own line, but the work grew on his hands until he has 
made a full and complete record of the entire Treat family. 

The earliest records are those of John Trott,of Staplegrove, near Taunton in Eng- 
land, the grandfather of Richard Trott, from whom the line of descent can be traced 
without any difficulty. His name occurs in the calendar of the Taunion Manor Roles. 
145s, 1463. 1473, 1479. He was probably the father of William Trott, whose name 
occurs in these calendars as of the same parish and hundred of Staplegrove, 1503, 
1504, 1510. In this country the name of Richard Trott (Robert, Richard, William, 
John) first occurs in 1641, in the entry of certain lands in Wethersfield, in his name. 
He came to New England as early as 1639. His youngest child, Katharine, was bap- 
tized in Pitminster, Eng., June 29, 1637. His family consisted of a wife and nine chil- 
dren — three sons and six daughters. He was born, 15S4, in Pitminster, died, 1669-70, in 
Wethersfield, Conn., married Alice Gaylard, April 27, 1615. The three sons of Richard 
are taken as founders of separate families, and their issue herein recorded, viz.: of 
Richard, pp. 35-129 ; of Robert, pp. 130-1S4; and of James, pp. 488-533. Robert 
Treat, of all the characters in this history, stands out in the grandest relief. Every 
honor that was possible was given him, both under the New Haven and the Con- 
necticut colony. His history is that of the Colonial War during its most heroic period. 
He was the commander-in-chief of the Connecticut forces in the great swamp fight ; 
in 1676 deputy governor, and in 1683 Governor of Connecticut. He served in 
that place fifteen years, retired from old age, and died July, 12, 1710, aged eighty- 
eight years. His history in Newark has never been fully written. He headed the 
forty-one brave men from Milford, who, with twenty-three others from Branford, 
founded the colony at Newark in 1666. In the division of the land Treat received 
two acres more than any of the others on account of his distinguished services. He was 
burgess or deputy at the first provincial assembly, holding that for five years. He was 
the first town clerk, and occupied various other positions of trust in the town. 

In 1672 he returned to Connecticut, leaving his daughter Mary, the wife of 
Azariah Crane, who inherited the valuable property referred to, being eight acres 
extending from Broad Street to Mulberry Street, and south to that amount of land, 
about the most valuable property in Newark to-day. The descendants of this Crane 
are those of this name who have inhabited what is now Montclair, giving to it its solid 
character. He also left his son John at Newark, who married Sarah Tichenor ; was 
a justice " to keep the peace"' in the county of Essex under Cornbury ; in 1709 was 
representative of Essex in the Assembly, when one qualification was 1,000 acres or 
£s°° i' 1 personal estate ; in 1712 was presiding judge in court ; in 1713 was Major 
Treat. He died August 1, 1714, leaving his estate to his daughter Sarah, who mar- 
ried Jonathan Crane, who was the son of the distinguished Jasper Crane and Joanna 
Swaine, daughter of Captain Swaine, an officer in the Colonial War. Descended 
from Sarah was the late Alfred C. Post, surgeon of this city, and also Dr. Gabriel 
Grant, who served during the late war as surgeon of volunteers, and is now a mem- 
ber of this society. G. G. 

History of the Moore Family, and an account of their reunion in 1890. 
By David Fellows Moore, under the direction of the Historical Committee ; with a 
Genealogical Record by Charles Church Moore. Royal Svo, pp. 409. Binghamton, 
Samuel P. Moore, 1893. 

The ideal family history has yet to be written, but the compilers of this work have 
done much towards its production. Unlike many similar works, it is the result 
of concerted action by the widely scattered members of the family, intelligently 
directed. The outcome is a history replete with interest. The family thus honored 
is the family of John Moore, of Forres, and Betty Taylor, his wife, of the neighbor- 
ing town of Elgin, Elginshire, Scotland, who emigrated to America in 1772, and 
after the Revolution settled at Moresville, Delaware Co., N. Y. Twelve hundred 
and sixteen of his descendants are traced, with one hundred and sixty-seven bio- 
graphical sketches among which there is an excellent one of Jay Gould, the Ameri- 
can financier, prepared by his sister, Mrs. Sarah B. Northrop, of Camden, N. J. 
There is a complete family chart, a connected genealogy, a copious index, and over 
one hundred illustrations. 

There is also a history of the Moore family in Scotland, and of the old home at 
Forres, together with a full report of the papers read and the speeches made at the

gathering of the clan at Roxbury, N. Y., in iSgo, all of which is exceedingly inter- 
esting even to those who are not of the family. The work is of such exceptional 
merit, it will tend to awaken the slumbering spirit of genealogical research and 
lead to the reunion of other families. It would have been of greater excellence if 
more attention had been given to maternal ancestry. The mothers should not be

The First Presbyterian Church of Paterson, N. J. Records of Trustees 
and Session. Compiled and edited by William Nelson. Svo, pp. 482. Paterson, 
N. J., 1893. 

This is not a history of the above-named church, but a publication of the Minutes 
of the Board of Trustees, from 1813 to 1891, of miscellaneous documents connected 
with the history of the church, and of the Minutes of the Session from 1S13 to 1892, 
with a full index, and notes making plain the text. The value of such works to the 
local historian can scarcely be estimated. They give us knowledge of those whose 
lives have moulded the character of cities, towns, and villages, but of whom, as of the 
great majority of mankind, there is no trumpet-tongued fame. 

" Noble deeds are held in honor, but the wide world sorely needs 
Hearts of patience to unravel this, the worth of common deeds." 

Every church owes it to those who have given it a name and a place on the earth, 
or who have nurtured and maintained its life, to put the records of the past in 
permanent form through the labors of the printing press. The amount of information 
concerning individuals, such as is needed for local and family histories, that is now 
hidden in church records that are rapidly perishing, is well-nigh incalculable. If in 
rescuing from destruction the records of the church he has served for years Mr. 
Nelson shall incite others to perform a similar work, he will receive the thanks, in 
ages to come, of all who are interested in historical research and the simple annals 
of mankind. F. W. W. 

Genealogy of the Pelton Family in America. Being a record of the 
descendants of John Pelton, who settled in Boston, Mass., about 1630-1632, and 
died in Dorchester, Mass., January 23, i68r. By Jeremiah M. Pelton. Joel Mun- 
sell's Sons, Albany, N. Y., 1892. 

Too much praise cannot be accorded to Mr. Pelton for the extremely thorough 
manner in which he has compiled this history of his family. More than a thousand 
names are introduced, and in a valuable appendix of one hundred pages is given 
an index of the males born in the name of Pelton, an index of females born in the 
name of Pelton, an index of surnames other than Pelton, and an index of names of 
places mentioned in the work of upwards of seven hundred octavo pages. There are 
nineteen well-executed portraits included in the portly volume. To a member of the 
Pelton family and a niece of Samuel J. Tilden the city of New York is under great 
obligations. Mrs. Hazard inherited $3,000,000 from his estate, and voluntarily 
released two-thirds of that large amount, enabling the Tilden trustees to establish the 
Free Library he intended to give to the city. w. 

Mather Genealogy. Lineage of the Rev. Richard Mather. By Horace 
E. Mather, of Hartford, Conn. Press of The Case, Lockwood & Brainard Co.. of 
Hartford, 1890. Sq. Svo, cloth, pp. 540, with illustrations. 

This book is an excellent example of the work of the genealogical student. The 
author, like many others, commenced with the simple desire to know something about 
his family ; his interest grew with his task through thirteen years of work, and he 
certainly has gathered a vast amount of valuable data. The Rev. Richard Mather, 
the first of the family in America, was a man of strong personality, which has made 
its impression upon many of his descendants, over eighty of whom, like himself, have 
been numbered among the clergy, the more notable being the Rev. Dr. Increase 
Mather and the Rev. Dr. Cotton Mather ; the volume contains a catalogue of their 
many writings, and is rich in biographical matter. The female lines are well carried 
out and carefully indexed. The plan of giving the year of birth in the index of 
names is a good one ; the addition of an index of places would have been an 
improvement. H. D. L.

General Scott, by Marcus J. Wright. General Washington, by Bradley 
T. Johnson. D. Appleton & Co., New York, 1894. 

The biographies of Washington by General Johnson of the Maryland bar, and 
Scott by General Wright of the War Department, Washington, are the latest addi- 
tions to General Wilson's " Lives of Great Commanders." We have now, for the first 
time, a satisfactory life of General W infield Scott, the conqueror of Mexico, as well 
as one of the young heroes of the war of 1812; and also curiously enough, although 
more than a hundred biographies have appeared, the first life of Washington as a 
soldier, and written by a soldier. General Johnson's work cannot fail to attract at- 
tention. It has the sustained interest of a romance, and throws new light on Brad- 
dock's campaign, and the gallant and successful efforts of Washington and his Virgin- 
ians to save the English command from total destruction. With the exception of 
the battle of New Orleans it was one of the most disastrous defeats ever sustained 
by a British army. \v. 

• Genealogy of the Barber-Eno Family, of Homer, N. Y. Newark, N. J., 
1893. Svo, muslin, pp. 40. 

This little book traces the Barbour-Barber family from the history of Norlhfield, 
Mass., traditions, and records in possession of Samuel McC. Barber, of Troy, 
N. Y., showing the descendants of Lieut. Thomas, who came to Dorchester, Mass., 
1635, through Samuel of the second, David of the third, David, Jr., of the fourth, and 
Aaron of the fifth generation. Sixteen pages are given to Jedediah, son of Aaron; 
eight pages to Paris, his son ; seven to Mrs. Jane Eno Barber, ncc Lydia Jane Eno, 
who married Paris Barber. The Eno family appear on pages 32 and 33, being three 
generations from James, of Windsor, Conn. Every publication of this kind helps to 
preserve something of value, but, however small, an index is very important, as it 
saves reading the entire book for the searcher who seeks a single name.

Svo, pp. xvi. 443. Illustrated, 

This book is the extremely valuable result of long, patient, and loving research 
into the history of a community, and is an example worthy of emulation to the highest 
degree by all local historians. Mr. Roe has left no stone unturned to give his read- 
ers the fullest and most complete information concerning events and people connect- 
ed with his native town and its neighborhood, and he deserves the heartiest thanks 
and congratulations, not only of his fellow-townsmen, but of all who are interested in 
the study of local history and genealogy. The illustrations are excellent, and the 
book is handsomely printed and bound.

Notes on the Surnames of Francus, Franceis, French, etc., Scotland, 
with an account of the Frenches of Thcrnydykes. By A. D. Weld French, 
Boston. Privately printed, 1S93. 

This well printed octavo contains two scholarly monographs. The first has been 
prepared from published and unpublished records in France and Great Britain on the 
occurrence of the surnames of Francus, Franceis, and French, while the second 
is devoted to the ancient family of Thornydykes in Berwickshire which, it appears 
from the interesting account, came to an end in the person of Adam French, tenth 
Laird of Thornydykes, early in the seventeenth century. We regret to find no

Sanford Genealogy. The branch of William, of Madison, N. Y. By Heman

The plan of this work is not the N. E. Register arrangement ; and, though it is 
simple and good, there is no reason for variety, and we think uniformity is preferable. 
It is a genealogy proper, and has the advantage of getting together the names, dates, 
and addre-ses, and showing the connection almost as plainly as a chart. It is not as 
readable as those which have biographical and historical padding, but is the framework 
on which any one can fill in family record and reminiscence ad libitum. The Society

The author, an invalid, has done this work beautifully at his own expense, and 
we are fortunate in receiving the last copy, all 1 he rest having been distributed to

Vol. XXV. NEW YORK, OCTOBER, 1894. No. 4. 


By Marcius D. Raymond. 

In 1776, an ardent and gifted youth tendering his sword in defence 
of the liberties of his country ; in 1876, an unmarked grave in a rural 
hamlet in Central New York. Between, a life of more than usual dra- 
matic and historic interest. A son of New York, born in this city, he 
here entered upon his career, and spent most of his life in this vicinage. 
And William Stephens Smith was well born and of worthy ancestry. He 
was the eldest of a family of four sons and six daughters, the date of his 
birth being November 8, 1755. His father, John Smith, who was a pros- 
perous merchant of New York City, and who had a country seat at 
Throgg's Neck in Westchester County, had married Margaret Stephens, 
the daughter of Capt. John Stephens of New York, where she was born 
in May, 1739. Her mother's name was Belinda Bush, who it is stated 
was born in Holland and educated in a convent. She was a Tory, and 
did all she could to prevent her ardent and patriotic grandson, William 
Stephens Smith, from espousing the cause of the Colonies. It is said she 
remained in the city of New York during the whole period of the war, 
visited, by the permission of the British Commandant, from time to time 
by her daughter. She lived to be about ninety years of age. Her hus- 
band, Capt. John Stephens, who was an officer in the British service, was 
killed in action on board a man-of-war at Carthagena before the Revolu- 
tion. Mrs. Margaret Stephens Smith is said to have been a very handsome 
and brilliant woman. Her memory is still cherished by her descendants, 
and a great-great-granddaughter, now a resident of Utica, writes: "Her 
portrait is to me beautiful, and for her character I have always felt greatest 
admiration." And she had in her something of the heroic spirit of those 
times, for it is said that when the British were sailing up the Sound prior 
to landing at Throgg's Neck, in October, 1776, the commanding officer 
ordered every dwelling to be cannonaded. She had been notified of this, 
but as the vessels came in sight, with folded arms she walked up and 
down the piazza in plain view of the enemy, who in compliment to her 
courage turned their guns in other directions. She died at Lebanon, 
Madison County, N. Y., April 1, 181 2, and was buried on Sherburne 
West Hill, Chenango County, N. Y. Her husband, John Smith, the 
father of Col. Wm. S., had died in the borough of Westchester, in 1785. 
William Smith, the father of John and grandfather of William Stephens 
Smith, had married Charity Bosch, daughter of Justus Bosch, of Rye, 
Westchester County, who gave her a bequest by will, date of 1739. John 
Smith and William Smith and Capt. John Stephens were all prominent

members of the old Presbyterian Church, formerly in Wall Street, as early 
as 1766. 

Colonel Smith's brothers, James, John, and Justus B., at some period 
during or after the Revolution, held commissions in the army, and were 
men of some distinction. James Smith married Ann Ross and lived for 
many years in Eastchester, Westchester County ; and St. Paul's Church, 
there located, has evidence in its communion service of gifts from mem- 
bers of his family. The late James Stoughton Lynch, Esq., of Utica, 
was his grandson. The other brothers were unmarried. 

A sister, Sarah Smith, who married Charles Adams, son of President 
John Adams, and brother of Mrs. Colonel Smith, left two daughters, one 
of whom, named Abigail Smith Adams, married Alexander Bryan Johnson, 
formerly of Utica, and was the mother of the late Judge A. S. Johnson, 
of that city, and of Mrs. Sarah Lynch, also of Utica, and of William C. 
Johnson, of Newburyport, Mass., who married a granddaughter of John 
Quincy Adams. 

His sister, Margaret Smith, married Felix de St. Hilaire. 

His sister Belinda married Matthew Clarkson, of the noted family of 
that name. 

His brother John was a lieutenant in the Revolution, commissioned 
as captain in 1789, major, 1796, and lieutenant-colonel, 1799. Settled 
in South Carolina and died there. 

Ann, the youngest daughter of the family, who married Josiah Masters, 
of Schagticoke, was the last survivor. She was long a resident of Ham- 
ilton, Madison County. She had at one time a large property, inherited 
from her husband and the family estate, or the Jaunceys of New York, to 
whom the Smith family were related, and lived in great style. She was a 
noted character in her day, and is still well remembered by many who 
knew her, among them the writer. 

This much of family history to attest the title of William Stephens 
Smith to good ancestry. 

Colonel Smith graduated at Princeton in 1774, and then entered upon 
the study of law with Samuel Jones, Esq., of New York, but, like many 
another American youth, he was all aglow with patriotism, and at the first 
clash of arms he enlisted in the patriot cause. He was soon after ap- 
pointed aide-de-camp to General Sullivan, with the rank of major, and 
served in that capacity in the unfortunate and disastrous battle of Long 
Island, where Sullivan was captured and he himself was for a short time 
in the enemy's hands. But he succeeded in escaping, and in the action 
at Harlem Heights, which soon after followed, he served on the staff of 
General Greene, and was wounded on the field. He remained under the 
surgeon's charge at the family homestead on Throgg's Neck, until the 
British troops landed there in their advance toward White Plains, and 
then, though still suffering from his wound, he rallied a handful of men 
to oppose their advance, and so succeeded in destroying the bridge at the 
crossing to the mainland that they were hindered several hours, while he 
and his retainers made their escape by horse and on foot into Connecti- 
cut. General Howe made the Smith mansion his headquarters during 
his stay at the Neck. The family, being forced to abandon everything, 
finally took refuge within the enemy's lines, in the city of New York, 
being thereby reduced from affluence to a condition of destitution and 
suffering — the wife and children helpless, and the husband and sons

among the patriot refugees. At this time, in their distressed circum- 
stances, a great temptation came to the young patriot soldier. In hope 
of getting some relief, his mother went to General Howe, the British 
commander. He received her kindly, said he was aware of her peculiar 
circumstances, that he knew her eldest son was an officer in the Provin- 
cial army ; supposed he had very naturally been carried away by the 
ardor of a young man for the military profession ; "begged her to make 
him his compliments," and to tell him that if he had a taste for army 
life a commission as major in his Majesty's service was at his disposal ; 
in which case he assured her, on his honor as a gentleman and soldier, 
that if she returned with her family her property should be restored and 
ail their losses be made good. It is said that she was inclined to relent, 
but the young patriot spurned the proffered bribe so offered. Soon after 
this, Major Smith, cured of his wound, presented himself with a flag of 
truce at the advanced outpost of the enemy, with letters from Generals 
Greene and Lee to General Howe, asking that Mrs. Smith and her family 
be permitted to pass without the lines. Friends in the city urged them 
to remain, but Mrs. Smith's decision was to go, with her husband and 
sons ; and so the family removed to Worthington, Conn., where they 
remained unmolested until the close of the Revolutionary war. 

Having resisted this great and insidious temptation, Colonel Smith 
entered with renewed ardor and determination upon his career as a 
patriot in arms. He participated in the battle of White Plains and the 
military movements that followed. In the memorable action at Trenton, 
so important and decisive, he acted a conspicuous part, entering the town 
with the advance of Sullivan's division, and subsequently, as is related, 
personally took the commanding officer of the Hessian troops from his 
horse at the moment of surrender, a feat of arms that attracted the atten- 
tion of Washington, who presented him with a lieutenant-colonelcy as a 
mark of his particular consideration. He afterwards joined the Thir- 
teenth Massachusetts Continental Regiment, being appointed to that 
service at Valley Forge, the crucial hour of the heroic struggle. With 
that regiment he took part in the battle of Monmouth, and from there 
went to Rhode Island, where he did good service in the attempted reduc- 
tion of Newport. Gen. Joseph Wheaton, of Rhode Island, writes under 
date of September 15, 1820, the original of which is still preserved, 
saying it was there "I became better acquainted with Colonel Smith. I 
well recollect his activity and usefulness in selecting the ground for our 
batteries, and his being at various times on picket guard and with rec- 
onnoitring parties, and particularly of his being on that service on the 
night the army retired to Butt's Hill. He was brought into action three 
times that day." 

Colonel Smith participated in 1779 in the famous Sullivan expedition 
against the Indians of Pennsylvania and Western New York as comman- 
der of Spencer's New Jersey regiment, and there did good service. In 
the campaign of 1780 he distinguished himself at the historic battle of 
Springfield, N. J., winning the thanks of Generals Greene and Washington 
for his gallant conduct. 

In January, 1781, Colonel Smith was ordered to join a corps of light 
infantry, commanded by the Marquis de Lafayette, of which he was 
appointed adjutant and inspector-general. This force operated in Vir- 
ginia, keeping watch of Cornwallis until he was finally driven into York-

town, the ever memorable siege and surrender following. It was there 
that Colonel Smith was the recipient of the high honor of being ap- 
pointed an aide to Washington, and so became a member of his military 
family, which position he continued to hold until the close of the war 
and the disbandment of the army. To quote again from General 
Wheaton : "As I was at headquarters, and frequently dined with 
General Washington at Philadelphia, after the siege, it was very discern- 
ible, General Washington's particular and marked attention to Colonel 
Smith. Also on an excursion General Washington made to the north, in 
the summer of 1783, to Albany, Saratoga, Ticonderoga and Crown Point, 
where I commanded the General Guard, and where General Washington, 
Colonel Smith and myself were often covered by the same tent." 

During the pendency of negotiations for peace Colonel Smith was 
appointed to command the advance post of the continental army at 
Dobbs Ferry, Westchester County, and, as acting commissary-general of 
prisoners, had charge of all communications with the British forces still 
in New York. At his headquarters there, a meeting was had by arrange- 
ment of Colonel Smith between Sir Guy Carlton and General Wash- 
ington, he introducing them to each other. After this interview Colonel 
Smith was appointed a commissioner to reside near Carlton, and at the 
evacuation of New York was the acting officer of the day who relieved 
the British Guards, and to him the city and country were officially 

But this is only a brief sketch of a brilliant military career that 
covered the entire period of the Revolution, without any lapse or 
apparent mar upon it, he having never been taken prisoner, nor brought 
under censure of superiors, nor been absent from duty. Indeed,, a rare 
record. The following testimonial given him by Washington, of the 
date of June 24, 1782, contains a resume of his honorable record as a 
soldier, and is worth a whole volume of common praise : 

Lieut. Col. W. S. Smith entered the services of the United States at the com- 
mencement of the present war. In August, 1776 he was appointed aid-de-camp to 
Major General Sullivan with the rank of Major in the Army. On the first of January 
1777, he was promoted to be a Lieutenant Colonel in one of the additional battalions 
raised by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. After which he had the honor of 
serving as Inspector and Adjutant General to the Corps of Light Infantry under the 
command of Major General the Marquis de LaFayette, in the campaign of 1780 ; 
and in the month of July, 1781, he was appointed aid-de-camp to the Commander-in 
Chief of the American Armies ; in all which military stations have behaved with 
great fidelity, bravery and good conduct. During the course of service Colonel 
Smith has had many opportunities of signalizing himself by his gallantry, intelligence, 
and professional, knowledge, in several battles, enterprises and seiges at which he has 
been present, particularly in the actions on Long Island and Harlem Heights, at the 
seige of Newport, in the expedition under the order of Major General Sullivan against 
the savages, in the battle of Springfield, where he commanded a Regiment, the 
successful seige of York in Virginia, where the army of Lord Cornwallis surrendered 
prisoners of war, and on many other important occasions. In consequence of which 
he hath merited my approbation and this testimony of his being a brave and valuable 

Given under my hand and seal at the headquarters of the American Army, the 
24th of June, 1782. G. WASHINGTON. 

Colonel Smith afterwards commanded the Ninth United States Infan- 
try, and was nominated for brigadier-general, but this must suffice for 
his military record.

Colonel William Stephens Smith. 


Soon after the close of the war he was appointed Secretary of Legation 
to England, by the votes of thirl\ -six out ol thirty-seven senators present 
in Congress, and so in 1784 he went abroad, and while There, besides 
attending to his duties at the Court of St. James, he officially visited the 
Spanish Court at Lisbon, arranging the business committed to his care in 
a manner highly satisfactory to the Government. He also made quite a 
tour of Europe, being everywhere received with honor. While at London 
he met Abigail Adams, the only and accomplished daughter of John 
Adams, then Minister Plenipotentiary to Great Britain, and that fallowed 
which has often happened before in song and story to the brae and fair. 
But from letters written to his intimate friend and fellow soldier, Col. 
Samuel B. Webb, it appears that he had been gallant to other ladies 
before he capitulated to the fair and stately Abigail. After a courtship of 
some two years, his marriage with Miss Adams was duly celebrated at 
London, June 12, 1786, the Bishop of St. Asaph officiating. In this 
connection, it is a singular coincidence that her mother's name was 
Abigail Smith before marriage, and that by marriage she herself should 
have become another Abigail Smith. He returned in 1788, though he 
afterwards revisited Europe on business and pleasure. Colonel Smith 
was one of the originators of the Society of Cincinnati, was Secretary of 
the New York division in 1790, Vice-President in 1794, and President 
of the Society 1795-97. On the 26th of September, 1789, General Wash- 
ington, then President, appointed him United States Marshal of the 
District of New York, and afterwards Supervisor of the Revenue. On 
June 24, 1800, President {ohn Adams appointed him Surveyor of the 
Port of New York. 

Colonel Smith now seemed to be at the zenith of his brilliant career. 
He was successful, prosperous, popular. He was a brave soldier, a 
gallant cavalier, and a gentleman of varied attainments, well fitted to win 
honor at Court or on the field. His father-in-law, John Adams, was 
President of the United States, and he himself was in high office. At 
that time he had a summer residence at Eastchester. In a letter dated 
there October 12, 1797, President Adams writes: "I arrived here at 
Colonel Smith's last night with my family, and shall make this house my 
home until we can go on to Philadelphia." A cut of that house appears 
in Scharf's " History of the County of Westchester." At the same time he 
had a fine house in town, still standing near Avenue A, on Sixty-first 
Street. At the sale by the State of the so-called Twenty Townships in 
Central New York, in 1789, representing a syndicate made up in part of 
foreign capitalists, he had purchased six whole townships of land in the 
present counties of Madison and Chenango, including the town of Sher- 
burne, the early home of the writer ; but if they were days of prosperity, 
he appears to have spent too liberally if not lavishly, and too rashly 
discounted the future. His naturally restless ambition, stimulated to 
unnatural excess by the exciting events of the Revolutionary war, devel- 
oped even in peaceful times along the lines of greater risk and adventure, 
and the ambitious spirit longed for other worlds to conquer. As early as 
June 25, 1782, in writing to Gov. George Clinton concerning the adjust- 
ment of his accounts, Colonel Smith made this significant statement : '" I 
leave this place (headquarters of the army at Newburgn) with permission 
to join the combined forces in the West Indies." 'Phis seems to be 
almost prophetic of what afterwards occurred, but for the time being he

then appears to have been persuaded from his purpose, although later, 
and at a time when all the skies were bright, he became involved in the 
unfortunate and at least ill-timed Miranda expedition to an extent that 
threatened to be very disastrous to him. 

Colonel Smith, as already stated, was a bold, adventurous spirit, and 
with his strong patriotic impulses he very naturally, and to his credit be 
it said, sympathized with the movements for liberty in all parts of the 
world. The ill-starred Miranda expedition was undertaken by Francisco 
Miranda, a Spanish patriot, for the liberation of the Spanish colonies in 
South America. Colonel Smith had made the acquaintance of General 
Miranda while abroad. There came to be very close relations between 
them, and thus he became complicated in that undertaking, his eldest 
son, William Steuben Smith, going out with Miranda as adjutant. The 
result was, on complaint of the Spanish Government, Colonel Smith was 
tried for connection with it, before the United States Supreme Court, the 
case commencing in April, 1806, and continuing until the July follow- 
ing, when he was acquitted of the charge. It was claimed that those 
high in authority had connived at the undertaking, and that they were 
only too glad when the case was thrown out of court. Unquestionably 
this was very humiliating and annoying to John Adams (then ex-Presi- 
dent), with all his strict punctiliousness and high ideas of honor and 
rectitude. For some time after that episode it is said that their relations 
were somewhat strained, though letters of a later date indicate restored 
confidence and reconciliation. 

And then financial disasters followed his other misfortunes, necessi- 
tating his removal with his family, in 1S07 or 1808, to Lebanon, then 
of Chenango and now of Madison County, where two of his brothers 
resided, and where together they owned a large tract of mainly unim- 
proved lands. The place of their settlement has long been known as 
Smith's Valley, a point about three miles southwest of the village of 
Hamilton. He there erected a modest story-and-a-half house, in maiked 
distinction from the palatial residence on Sixty-first Street, New York, 
and the mansion in Eastchester. The building' is still standing, though 
now an adjunct to a more pretentious dwelling, and in other days was 
often pointed out to the writer as the early home of his mother, whose 
father succeeded the Smiths in possession. 

The family of Colonel Smith occupied that place as their residence 
until 1813, Mrs. Smith having died on the 14th of August of that year, 
while at the home of her father in Quincy, Mass., at the age of forty- 
eight. She must have been a rarely attractive woman, of great charm 
and loveliness. A portrait by Copley, engraved in steel, attests her 
beauty. Her memory may well be precious to her descendants. To her 
husband her loss was irreparable. 

It is said that Colonel Smith had retired from public life to his farm 
in Lebanon, having previously declined important command in the army; 
but, at the election for Congress, held on the 16th and 17th of Decem- 
ber, 1S12, previous to the death of his wife, Colonel Smith had been 
chosen as member of the House of Representatives for the district com- 
prising the counties of Madison and Herkimer, having a majority of 
three hundred and ninety-three over his competitor, Hubbard Smith, in 
a total vote of four thousand six hundred and twenty-nine. He was a 
Federalist, and acted with that party in Congress. 

1894-] Colonel William Stephens Smith. r eg 

This election must have been very gratifying to him as a maik of 
confidence and esteem coming to him in the days of his adversity. At 
the succeeding election he was defeated by Wetsel Willoughby, by a 
small majority, the Federal party being then out of power and on the 

The certificate of election was given to Colonel Smith, owing to an 
informality in a portion of the vote of his opponent, though it appears 
that he made no opposition to Mr. Willoughby taking his seat. 

Two of Colonel Smith's brothers had died quite suddenly in March, 
18 16, and he did not long survive, having died at his residence in the 
town of Lebanon, June 10, 1816. In a letter from Miss Elizabeth Adams, 
of Quincy, Mass., it is called New Lebanon, while the place of death of 
his father, John Smith, is designated as ''Lebanon, in the borough of 
Westchester." Who of our local historians can give the boundaries and 
locale of that earlier but now obliterated Lebanon ? It certainly appears 
to have been the predecessor, if not the ancestor, of its later namesake in 
Madison County, the nomenclature of which was probably given it by the 
Smith family, who also gave the name o( Smith's Valley to the hamlet 
where they resided. 

At the time of Colonel Smith's death none of his family were remain- 
ing there, his eldest son, William Steuben Smith, who was a sole executor 
and legatee, being at that time a resilient of the city of New York ; but 
his daughter, Mrs. DeWindt, hurried to him from her home on the Hud- 
son in time to be present in the last days of his illness. He died on the 
evening of the 10th of June, 18 16, and the notice of the executor was 
published in New York on the 22d of that month, naming his office at 
6 Vesey Street. The Society of the Cincinnati published official announce- 
ment of his death on |une 17. 

Colonel Smith left surviving him three children : William Steuben 
Smith, John Adams Smith, and Caroline Amelia, who had married John 
Peter DeWindt, of Fishkill-on-the-Hudson, son of John DeWindt, of 
New York, an old and honorable family who inherited a large estate, ['he 
eldest son, William Steuben, married Miss Catharine Johnson, but left no 
issue. He died at Newburg, N. Y., May 12, 1850. 

John Adams Smith is said to have been at one time Secretary of Lega- 
tion at St. Petersburg!!. He was a lawyer, and was in practice for a few 
years at Hamilton, N. Y. Was unmarried. 

Caroline Amelia, the only daughter of Colonel and Mrs. Smith, who 
married Mr. John P. DeWindt, and lived at Fishkill. had eight children, 
of whom five survive, as follows : Mrs. Monell, widow of Judge Monell 
and formerly Mrs. A. J. Downing ; Mrs. Clarence Cook, and Mr. Arthur 
DeWindt, all of Fishkill ; Mrs. C. P. Cranch, of Cambridge, Mass. ; and 
Mrs. Gabriel Furman, of East Orange, N.J. Mr. Arthur DeWindt served 
with distinction in the late war for the Union, holding a commission as 
captain in the 128th N. V. V. A son of his is a member of the Society 
of Cincinnati. The DeWindts are patriotic, cultured people, and it is 
enough to say that they are worthy of their distinguished ancestry. Mis. 
DeWindt, the only daughter of Colonel and Mrs. Smith, was lost in that 
terrible tragedy, the burning of the steamboat Henry Clay, which occurred 
on the Hudson, near Yonkers, July 28, 1852. Her son-in-law, Andrew 
Jackson Downing, the noted landscape artist, also lost his life by that 
same catastrophe. Mrs. Downing, who was on board, was among the

saved. The portrait of Mrs. DeWindt shows her a beautiful woman, with 
a striking resemblance to her mother. She was a lady of literary taste, 
and a choice little volume by her, published in 1841, entitled, "Journal 
and Correspondence of Miss Adams," contains a memoir of Colonel 
Smith, which has much aided in the preparation of this sketch. 

An engraving of Colonel Smith has been prepared from a portrait of 
him by Trumbull, now in the possession of his granddaughter, Mrs. Fur- 
man, of East Orange, N. J., and which, though injured by the fire which 
destroyed the DeWindt mansion at Fishkill many years ago, is still an 
object of no little interest. He is also represented in a group of distin- 
guished officers in an engraving made at the time of his visit to Frederick 
the Great, and struck off in honor of the occasion, of which his grandson, 
Arthur DeWindt, Esq., of Fishkill, has a copy. 

Mrs. John Adams, writing to her sister, Mrs. Cranch, in 1786, just 
prior to the marriage of her daughter, says of Colonel Smith : "Your 
niece is engaged to a gentleman worthy of her ; one whom you will be 
proud to take by the hand and own as a nephew. With regard to his per- 
son, he is tall, slender, and a good figure ; a complexion naturally dark, 
but made still more so by seven years' service in the field. He appears a 
gentleman in every thought, word, and action." 

He was buried, it appears, at some distance from the place of his resi- 
dence and death, in the town of Sherburne, Chenango County, in a plot 
which had been reserved by his brother Justus B. in the gift of a burial- 
place to the Second Congregational Society and Church located at Sher- 
burne West Hill, sometimes in the early days called Lvnde's Hill, where his 
mother and his brother Justus B. , probablv his brother James, and his 
nephew, Charles Clarkson, son of Matthew M. and Belinda Smith Clark- 
son, were also buried. But, strange to relate, for over seventy-two years 
there was no stone to mark his last resting-place, and all knowledge of 
the spot had been lost to his descendants, who were living far from those 
scenes ; yet, happily, the memory of the fact had survived in that locality 
for more than two generations, and knowledge of it coming to the writer, 
whose kindred sleep near by, it was a labor of love to gather up the 
broken threads of memory and tradition from many sources, until it was 
made so clear that it was the place where the distinguished soldier and 
civilian was buried, that his honored descendants, the DeW^indts, lost no 
time in putting up a memorial stone to mark the spot. It was placed in 
position there in November, 1888, and was an act creditable to the great- 
grandchildren of President John Adams. 

No longer any doubt remains as to .where sleeps this brave and dis- 
tinguished soldier of the Republic. The stone there set up bears the 
following inscriptions : 

Here lie the remains of 

Colonel William Stephens Smith, 

Who died at Lebanon, N. Y., June 10, 18 16, 

Aged 59 years. 

On the reverse side : 

In the War of Independence he fought in 22 battles, 
serving as

On another side of the monument : 

In Memory of 

Abigail Adams, the Wife of Col. Wm, S. Smith, 

And only daughter of John Adams, 

Second President of the United States. 

The following is a brief summary of Colonel Smith's record : "Born 
November 8, 1755 ; graduated at Princeton, 1774 ; Major and Aide-de- 
camp to General Sullivan, August 15, 1776; Lieut. -Col. of Lee's Addi- 
tional Continental Regiment, January 1, 1777 ; transferred to Spencer's 
Regiment, April 22, 1779 ; Adjutant and Inspector, Staff of General 
LaFayette, to July, 1781 ; Staff of General Washington from July, 1781 ; 
Secretary Legation to London, 1784; married Abigail Adams, 1786; 
President Society Cincinnati, 1795-7; U.S. Marshal, 1789; Surveyor 
of the Port of New York, 1800; original owner of Sherburne, 1 79 1 ; 
Member of Congress, 1812-14. Died June 10, 1 8 1 6 ; buried on Sher- 
burne West Hill." 

Of Colonel Smith it may well be said, " His illustrious career is more 
imperishable than 'storied urn or monumental bust ;' " and what could 
be sweeter than that amid those rural scenes his manly form should rest 
on the bosom of mother earth on such a heaven-kissed hill, where " no 
bugle sounds reveille ! "

By Henry Stoddard Ruggles, Esq., of Wakefield, Mass. 

Both the English and American Ruggles families trace their descent 
from Thomas Ruggles, Esq., of Sudbury, Suffolk, England, whose will 
was of date June 21, 1547, in the following lines : 

English Family : Thomas 1 of Sudbury, Suffolk ; Nicholas 2 of Sud- 
bury ; George 3 of Sudbury ; George 4 of Sudbury ; John 5 of Booking, 
Essex ; John" of Booking ; Thomas 7 of Booking ; Thomas" of Clare, 
Suffolk ; Thomas 9 of Spains Hall, Braintree, Essex ; John' of Spains 
Hall, Essex and Clare, Suffolk, who by royal license assumed the sur- 
name of Brise in addition to that of Ruggles, and whose son is the present 
Colonel Samuel B. Ruggles-Brise of Spains Hall, Essex, and Cavendish 
Hall, Sudbury, Suffolk. 

American Family : Thomas' of Sudbury, Suffolk ; Nicholas" of Sud- 
bury ; Thomas 3 of Sudbury ; Thomas 4 of Sudbury, Suffolk, Nasing, 
•Essex (1620), and Roxbury, Mass. (1637). 

The arms borne by Thomas Ruggles, Esq., of Sudbury (1547), were : 
Argent, a chevron between three roses gules ; Crest — a lower or, faming at 
the top proper and transfixed with four arrows in salt ire argent, which were 
precisely the same as those of Ruggeley of Staffordshire. Certain mod- 
ern English works on heraldry describe the arms of Thomas Ruggles, 
Esq., above, with the roses " seeded or, awned vert" ; but the introduc- 
tion of these tinctures is believed to be a recent innovation, for in John 
Sydney Hawkins's " Life of George Ruggles " (who died in 1622) — which 
was published by T. Payne & Son of London, in 1787, and which had the 
sanction of the then English representative of the lamily — -the bearings 
are given with the roses gules only, exactly the blazon of Ruggeley found 

1894.] The Ruggles Families of England and America. i5c 

in the " Heralds' Visitation of Staffordshire. " There is, however, evidence 
that this same variation from the original shield had claimants in the 
house of Ruggeley, for in St. Ives's Church, Huntingdonshire, where the 
last survivors of that name in England were found, is a window showing 
three shields of Ruggelev arms, and on each of these the roses appear 
seeded or, awned vert. The only persons now living of that family are 
the descendants of Henry Rugeley (the name is spelled with one g in 
later times), of South Carolina, who adhered to the Royal cause in our 
Revolutionary war, and held a colonel's commission from Lord Rawdon ; 
and A. J. Rugeley, Esq., of New Orleans, his great-grandson, has now 
in his possession a coat-of-arms like those upon the window of the church 
of St. Ives. The same deviation being found both in Ruggeley and 
Ruggles is remarkable. 

Hawkins has the following regarding the early history of the family of 
Ruggles: "His father was descended from an ancient and reputable 
family of the name of Ruggeley, who were originally of Staffordshire, and 
were, says Sir William Dugdale, 'gentlemen of good note, for so early as 
the twenty-sixth year of the reign of Edward I., I find William de Rug- 
gele recorded with an encomium for having performed faithful service to 
the king in his army in Flanders, and in the tenth, thirteenth, and four- 
teenth of Edward III. mention is made of Simon de Ruggeley, who was 
then sheriff of the counties of Salop and Stafford.' The earliest informa- 
tion I have been able to obtain touching the place of their first settlement 
is, that in the tenth year of Henry V., and perhaps for some time before, 
they resided at Hawkesbeard in Staffordshire, but am inclined to think 
that they were not only originally settled at but that they even received 
their surname from a market town named Ruggeley in Staffordshire, 
which in the maps is laid down as situated a few miles beyond Lichfield, 
on the road from London to Chester, and that from this place it was that 
they removed to Hawkesbeard. To support this conjecture here advanced, 
little more will be necessary than to observe that the two earliest persons 
of this family whose names have anywhere been found are both described 
with the Latin preposition De prefixed to their surnames in the records in 
which their names respectively occur; the former of the two is styled 
William de Ruggele, the latter, Simon de Ruggeley. Camden, speaking 
of the etymology of surnames, says that all which in Latin old evidences 
have had De prefixed to them were borrowed from places, and this dis- 
tinction of local names with De was uniformly observed in records till 
about the time of Edward IV. The name Ruggeley as applied to a 
place, though the time of its assumption is much too distant to enable us 
to decide with certainty, is most probably of Anglo-Saxon origin, signify- 
ing rough or rugged land, and might very properly refer to the unculti- 
vated state of the place at the time it was thus named. From Hawkesbeard, 
in consequence of a purchase of an estate which he had made in War- 
wickshire, Nicholas Ruggeley, Esq., removed about the tenth of Henry 
V. to Dunton, in that county, where he became the founder of a new 
family. About the beginning of the sixteenth century a younger branch 
of this family removed first into Lincolnshire, and very shortly afterward 
to Suffolk." 

" Wright's History of Essex," England, quotes in brief this statement 
of Hawkins's in giving the origin of the Ruggles family of Suffolk and

By Richard H. Greene. 

(Continued from Vol. XXV., p. 133.) 

Class of 1762. 

Edward Aniill was son of Hon. Edward Antill, who was a major in 
H. B. M. service in Canada before the Revolution. Edward Antill, the 
grandfather, was formerly of Richmond, County Surrey, Eng., merchant. 
He came to New York where he was practicing at the bar, the last of the 
sixteenth and early in the seventeenth century. His wife's name was 
Sarah, and Edward was born June 17, 1701 ; married, June 10, 1739, 
Anne, daughter of Lewis Morris, Esq., Governor of New Jersey, and 
Isabella his wife. 

He resided at Raritan Landing, and it is said was remarkable for his 
eccentricities. Governor Morris recommended him for the Council, 1740 
and 1745. He was also named as superintendent of a lottery, in 1759, 
to raise £1500 for completing the Episcopal church at New Brunswick. 
He gave £1800 towards founding King's College. He was a member of 
the General Assembly, 1738 ; of the Council, 1 74 1 , 1746. He died 
August 15, 1770. Of his sons, two served in the Continental Army. 
Edward, the graduate, was born April 11, 1742. He was in Canada when 
the war began ; and in Quebec, when the troops besieged that city in 
1775, he refused to take up arms, and was sent out to the American lines, 
where General Montgomery assigned him to duty as chief engineer, and 
he was with that officer when he died, and bore the despatches from 
Wooster to Schuyler and Congress. He married, at Quebec, May 4, 
1767 (the Rev. John Brooks, chaplain of the garrison, officiating), Char- 
lotte Riverin. She died at New York, September 3, 1785, aged thirty- 

He was commissioned lieutenant-colonel of Hazen's regiment, Janu- 
ary 22, 1776. An officer at Quebec writes of Hazen as then "under half 
pay, having raised 150 recruits in Canada, and the engineer, Col. Ed. 
Antill, as. his lieutenant-colonel, who had practiced law ten or twelve years 
in New York." This was March 8, 1776. 

In December he was sent to recruit in New Jersey and the Southern 
States, with the approbation of Washington, and Congress voted him 
$2000 for his expenses. 

Lt.-Col. Stephen Kemble wrote in his journal, August, 1777: ''My 
schoolmate, Antill, among the prisoners on Staten Island." 

An aide-de-camp of General Pattison, August 7, 1 779, informed Colonel 
Antill and the officers on parole on Long Island, in reference to a con- 
troversy with a sergeant of the guard at Flatbush : "They were in the 
wrong, and trusts care will be taken to prevent any more conflicts." 
Antill was an officer in the Second Continental Regiment, after his ex- 
change, which occurred November 2, 1780, until January 1, 1783, when 
he was retired. Col. Moses Hazen was commander during the entire 

1894.] and its Earliest Alumni. 


term. He had a daughter, Frances, who married Arthur Tappan, first 
president of the American Anti-Slavery Society. He died at St. John's, 
Canada, May 21, 1789, aged forty-seven years. 

Henry Cuyler was perhaps descended from Henry and Anna Cuyler of 
Albany, or Hendrick and Maria Jacobs, married 1710 ; or Henry, jun., 
and Alida Rynders, married March, 1743, in New York, but I have not 
found it. 

Henry Cuyler was a familiar name here. As early as 1689 one was 
commissioned major of militia, New York. As merchant and shipowner 
this name appears 1711, 1747, 1756, 1757. Sometimes it is "junior." 
In 1758 the junior was appointed Port Warden, New York, with Leonard 
Lispenard. I am quite at a loss to place the graduate. 

The Catalogue gives only his graduation and A. M., not even his 
death. He was perhaps a brother of Barent (1763). In 1769 an act 
was passed to indemnify the treasurers of the Colony (New jersey) for 
advancing money, in the controversy touching the boundary line, to the 
agents appointed by law. One of these agents was Henry Cuyler. 

He was. perhaps, the man ordered by the Provincial Congress to remove 
from his house in Newark on account of adherence to the crown, but 
permitted, by vote, July 17, 1776, because "so extremely indisposed as to 
render his removal very dangerous, " to remain for the present, give his 
parole, and a bond with security in penalty of £1000. He, or one of 
the name, married Catharine, daughter of Councillor John Barberie (Col- 
lector of the Port at Am boy, at his death, 1770) and Gertrude, daughter 
of Andrew Johnston, his wife. That family was loyal to the King. This 
Henry Cuyler died in Newark, May, 1774, aged twenty-eight. His widow 
is believed to have died at Amboy. They left several children. 

William Cornelius George appears as fifth among the graduates, 
of a class of forty-four, at Yale, the same year, and is believed to have 
died before 1770. He certainly could not have pursued his studies at 
both institutions at the same time, and where one is thus claimed by two, 
we naturally expect more to be known about him. 

John Grinnell, or Grenell, as it was spelled June 28, 1775, when he 
was appointed Captain, Second New York Regiment. He is called of 
Huntington, and his command the Suffolk Company. The Provincial 
Congress, November 3, ordered Colonel McDougall to send Captain 
Grinnell, Third Regiment, New York Continentals, up to the fortifica- 
tions on the Hudson. December 6 they recommended that he be released 
from his present duty, and promoted captain of the company of Matrosses. 
January 22, 1776, he was appointed, accordingly, Captain New York 
Artillery. He signed a memorial to the New York Congress, February 
21, and March 27 he resigned as Captain of Artillery. This was filed 
March 3c, 1776. I cannot say that he was a native of Huntington, and 
do not find any record of his after life or death. 

Alexander Leslie became Head Master of the Grammar School, suc- 
ceeding Matthew Gushing, who was appointed 1763, but the date of his 
appointment or retiring does not appear, though William Cochran appears 
to succeed him in 1784. I do not think he remained until that date. 
He addressed Lord and Sir Wm. Howe 1776, which places him among 
the Loyalists, and seems to have married Mary Ellis, December 22, 1780. 

Leonard Lispenard, Jr., already alluded to, was born 1743, and 
baptized December 21. He was a merchant, and member of the New 

176 King's College, New York Cily, [Oct., 

York Chamber of Commerce. He had an out-of-town house on Daven- 
port's Neck, New Rochelle. He was a man of culture and travel. He 
never married. It is not necessary to go into the pedigree of this family. 
He was brother of Anthony (class of 1 76 1 ), son of Col. Leonard and 
Elsje, daughter of Anthony and Cornelia Rutgers. The father was an 
active patriot, member of Stamp Act Congress 1765, Committee of Fifty- 
one 1774, Committee of One Hundred 1775, and member of the Provin- 
cial Congress. 

His daughter Cornelia has also been mentioned as married to Thomas, 
brother of John Marston (1760). 

Col. Leonard Lispenard's father was Anthony (1683-175 5), of New 
Rochelle, N. Y., son of Antoine L'Espinard, the colonial baker at 

IVm. Benj. Nicoll Maverick, born September 20, 1743, a descendant 
of Paul, of Boston, Mass., also of Benjamin Nicoll, of Islip, L. I., whose 
widow, Charity, daugher of Co!. Richard Floyd, married Dr. Samuel 
Johnson 1725, afterwards first president of King's College. She had by 
her first husband two sons who were both prepared by Dr. Johnson and 
graduated at Yale College, 1734 : Benjamin Nicoll and William Nicoll. 

Daniel Robert was loyal to the King and went to St. Christopher's, 
where he became Attorney General under the Colonial government. 


Barent Cuyler. — I have failed to discover anything and the Catalogue 
tells us nothing of this man. 

Abraham De Peyster entered the King's service as Captain, New York 
Volunteers. He was second in command at King's Mountain 1780, and 
after the fall of Ferguson he hoisted the flag of surrender. After the 
peace he went to St. Johns, N. B. , and was one of the grantees of that 
city. He also received half pay from the British government. He was 
Colonel of the militia there and Treasurer of the Province. He died in 


Richard Harison is not unknown, and I would merely mention 
him, but I find his name does not appear in Drake's Biographical Dic- 
tionary ; nor is it in Hough's Biographical Notes, which claims to take 
up the names omitted from Allen and Drake. Appleton's Cyclopaedia 
of American Biography also fails to mention him. He was vestryman, 
Trinity Church, N. Y., 1783, 1788-1811. Warden, 181 [-27. Secretary 
of the Board of Regents, July, 1784, to 1790. A lawyer and a federalist, 
he was appointed by President Washington United States District Attorney 
for New York, and acted in politics with Hamilton, Jay, and Livingston 
against Clinton and Burr. In 1788-89 he was member of the New York 
Legislature, and in the former year was also member of the convention 
which adopted the Federal Constitution, where his votes were in favor of 
its adoption. He was made Recorder of the City of New York February 
15, 1798, and held this important office till August 25, 1801. He had 
sons and grandsons who graduated from the College. He received degree 
of D.C.L. from Oxford University, England.

oflices than any graduate, and reflected honor on his college and his 
State in every position. Though so small in numbers, it was a great 
class ; only three besides, to the present time, have had a cabinet officer ; 
no other has had a Chief Justice of the United States; but five others 
have given Governors to the State. This class alone, from the foundation 
of the College until it was closed on account of the war, was a unit for the 
Colonists against the King. 


Egbert Benson is one of the brightest names among the graduates of 
King's College. 

Robert R. Livingston (only a little more known and honored) ranks 
close to Hamilton and Jay. These men need no searcher to. discover 
what they were and did. 

Richard Grant appears in the Catalogue, with neither letter nor date 
appended. He was called clerk, and in 1776 was appointed by Sir 
William Howe chaplain for the garrison at St. Johns. There was then 
one supporter of the King in the class of 1765. Grant had a daughter 
Anne, who married, in 1786, Sir Cornelius Cuyler, Baronet, a native of 
this Colony, who was born in Albany, October 31, 1740; her family 
succeeded to the title. 

Arent Schuyler was born 1746, son of John Schuyler and Anne Van 
Rensselaer his wife, the daughter of the Patroon. He married Swan 
Schuyler, his double cousin, their fathers being brothers and their mothers 
sisters. She was daughter of Adonijah and Gertrude Van Rensselaer. 
John and Adonijah were sons of Arent Schuyler, fourth son of Philip and 
Margarita Van Slichtenhorst, married December 12, 1650. Arent was 
born June 25, 1662 ; married, January 2, 1703, Swantje Dyckhouse ; she 
died in 1723. Arent was Captain in the Indian and French troubles, 
1692, 1693, and removed to New York 1694 ; that year Governor Fletcher 
sent him to the Minnisink Indians. After his return the Indians deeded 
him a thousand acres on the Minnisink, and the Governor confirmed it 
in a patent ; he removed to Pompton and, subsequently, to the Passaic 
above Newark. He had a very large property, which was increased by 
the discovery of copper by one of his slaves. Arent died about 1731. 
The homestead with lands and a house in Broadway, New York, he left 
to John, who seems to have been his favorite ; to Adonijah (the uncle and 
father-in-law of the graduate) he left lands at Elizabethtown Point ; to 
each of his sons he gave a share in the mine and the slaves. Arent and 
Swan were married November 2, 1772 ; they lived at Belleville, N. J. 
He remained true to the colonists, but the sons of Adonijah entered the 
British service, and his wife's sister married Hon. Henry St. John, son of 
Baron St. John of Bletsho. His father had been appointed to the King's 
Council, but I only find him in one public position, member of the 
Bergen County Committee of Correspondence. May, 1775. He had one 
daughter, perhaps other children. 

Henry Lloyd was son of John, born February 9, 1711; married, 
December 24, 174 1, Sarah Woolsey, daughter of Rev. Benjamin and 
Abigail (Taylor) Woolsey. John was a gentleman farmer on Lloyd's 
Neck, a peninsula off Huntington, Suffolk, though part of Queen's County, 
N. Y. It was a British post called Fort Franklin during the Revolution,

the scene of some whale-boat warfare. Dr. Dwight thinks he was in the 
commissary department of Connecticut during the war, but I fail to find 
it. The father of John was Henry Lloyd, born November 28. 1685 ; 
married Rebecca, daughter of John son of Robert and Marv (Temple) 
Nelson. Mary Temple was daughter of Sir John Temple. This Henry 
became proprietor and settled on the Neck, 171 1, and died March 18, 
1763. Rebecca Nelson was born November 15, 1688, and died July 27, 

The father of Henry Lloyd, and great-grandfather of the graduate, was 
James Lloyd, from Boston, and Newport, R, I., who came into posses- 
sion of part of the Neck by his marriage to Grizzelda, daughter of 
Nathaniel Sylvester, one of the patentees from Governor Nicolls, 1665. 
Lloyd purchased the remainder, and Governor Andros confirmed it to 
him by his patent, 1677. He married Rebecca, daughter of Governor 
Leverett, after the death of his first wife, who had issue, Henry, Joseph, 
and Grizzle. He died August 16, 1698. Henry Lloyd, the graduate, 
was the eldest of eight children of John and Sarah Woolsey ; he never 
married. There was a Henry and James on the estate during the war 
who were protected by General Howe ; at the same time, it is said, John 
lived at Stamford and Joseph at Hartford, Conn., and their lands were 
confiscated. These must be the father of the graduate and his brothers, 
i.e., Henry, born 1706, a loyalist, who died in England and was included 
in the attainder after the peace ; Joseph, born 171 6, and died in Hartford, 
1780 ; James, the youngest and only remaining brother at that date, born 
1728, a physician at Boston when he died, March, 1810. 

John was a resident of Stamford as early as 1747, and there the 
graduate was born Friday, July 22, 1743. His father seems to have been 
warden of St. John's Church, Stamford, as early as March, 1747, and as 
late as 1759. He deeded, for £3 4 3 65. nd., from St. George Talbot, 
two tracts, one of eighteen acres in Northfield, the other four acres, at 
North Street and the highway, "10 the u»e of the missionary 
the rector of St. John's Church, and his successors." He held no civil 
office, but on October 7, 1774, at a meeting warned to consider the claims 
of the Bostonians then suffering from the action of the Fort Bill, John 
Lloyd, Samuel Hutton, Captain Samuel Youngs, Captain David Hoyt, 
and Charles Weed were appointed a committee to receive subscriptions, 
for the supply of the poor in the town of Boston. I do not know the 
date of his return to Lloyd's Neck, sometimes called Lloyd's Manor, but 
he was appointed Judge of Common Pleas, February, 1784. There 
Henry seems to have lived alter the war, and there he died January 14, 
1825, "'/• & J > having never married. 


fames Barclay, son of Andrew and Helena (Roosevelt) Barclay, who 
were married in New York, |une 14, 1737. Sarah, his sister, married 
Anthony Lispenard (1761, King's College). He had five sisters who 
married, and four brothers, none of whom left descendants. Rev. Dr. 
Henry (of Trinity, 1746, to his death in 1764) was his fathers brother. 

James enlisted as a New Jersey vo'unteer in the cause of the King, 
was taken prisoner on Staten Island, 1777, and sent to Trenton by the 
Americans. He married Mary Van Beverhout and had a daughter,

Catharine Eliza, who married, in 18 12, James Roosevelt (son of Isaac 
and Cornelia Hoffman), born January 10, 1760; the issue of this, his 
second marriage, was Susan Barclay Roosevelt, born July 21, 1813, and 
James Barclay Roosevelt, born 181 5. 

Gerard Beekman was first lieutenant in the First Battalion New York 
Independent Militia, of the company called "Sportsmen." January 3, 
1776, when a vote was taken, if they would engage in the cause of the 
colonies, he voted in the affirmative. His father was called Lieutenant 
Gerardus also; he was born at Flatbush, L. I., June 9, 1693; married 
October 9, 1 7 1 8, Anna Maria Van Home ; his son married Anna Van 
Home, October 26, 1745; their eldest child, I believe, was Gerard, 
baptized New York Dutch Church, September 24, 1746; he married 
Cornelia, daughter of Lt.-Gov. Pierre Van Cortlandt and Joanna Living- 
ston. They lived just north of Peekskill, surrounded by Tories, and he 
was watched by the enemy and once summoned to Tryon's headquarters, 
but the opportune arrival of American troops saved him. 

After the war he purchased part of the confiscated Philipse manor 
near Tarrytown, and lived thenceforward in the old manor house of 
Philipseburgh. His monument in the Van Cortlandt cemetery reads : 
"Gerard G. Beekman, born September 19, 1746, New York City, died 
June 22d, a.d. 1822, at his seat in the town of Mount Pleasant, aged 
seventy-three years nine months and three days." 

Richard Nicolls Colden, son of Alexander, was appointed Ensign, 
August 27 (the year he graduated), in the Forty-second Royal High- 
landers, and resigned therefrom 1772. He was with the regiment at the 
Isle of Man, and while there married a Miss Bethune. In 1772 he was 
appointed Surveyor of Customs, at New York, and held the office until 
he died 1777, aged thirty-one years. He had two sons that survived 
him, to wit: Alexander, who died without issue, and Cadwalader R., 
sometime editor of the Sporting News, New York. 

Richard d'Olier. — Of this man I find nothing. 

Joseph d'Olier, master of the ship Le Concord, which was captured, 
after the cessation of hostilities, by Captain Menzie, petitioned the State 
for its release, 1747-48. This is almost the only occasion where I find 
the name. 

Edward Nicoll, son of Edward and Agnes (de Meyer) Nicoll, was born 
August 29, 1744. Edward, senior, was born February 20, 1717, and 
died 1797 ; they had nine children, as follows : 
i. Agnes, b. May 7, 1740. 
ii. Edward (King's, 1766).

William Williams's First Cumberland County regiment, Guilford Company. 
I have no reason to believe either of these was the graduate. He married 
Helena Roosevelt, December 24, 1786 ; she was daughter of Jacobus and 
Annaetje Bogaert, was younger than he, having been born August 9, 
1 76 1 ; she survived him and married second a Mr. Mowers. Ray 
attended the Presbyterian Church in New York, where one of his name 
was a trustee, 1759, t> ut *-he name does not occur in the first city directory. 
I have not been able to learn whether there was any issue of this marriage. 
One of the daughters of Col. Marinus Willett married a Ray, and I think 
possibly of the same family. 

Henry Rutgers, born October 7, 1745. This man and his family are 
so well known, there is no necessity of a lengthy sketch. After gradu- 
ation he lived in this city ; May 8, 1775, was Captain of Company of 
Grenadiers in the militia ; the next year was Lieutenant in Malcolm's 
regiment, New York line. He was a member of the New York Legis- 
lature, 1784, 1800-02, and 1 807. Regent 1802-06, Trustee of the 
College, 1804-17, and died 183c, at. 85. He never married. His life, 
with portrait, is given in the 17th volume of the Record from the pen 
of his great-nephew. Ernest H. Crosby. 

John Troup, died 1775. 

John Troup, Jr., born 1747 circa, died 1817, at. 70. These class- 
mates were probably brothers' sons. The name does not appear in 
Savage's Dictionary, in Durries Index of American Pedigrees and 
Genealogies, or the earliest directory of New York. The name is not 
extinct, however, even here. 

John Vardill, born in New York, 1752, son of Captain Thomas 
Vardill, a native of Bermuda, at one time Port Warden at New York, 
married Hannah Tiebout, December, 1745. John had several brothers 
and sisters. He was tutor and professor at the College in 1773. In 
January, 1774, he embarked for England, being a loyalist, and to take 
orders, which he did, and was ordained at Stirbeck, Lincolnshire, and 
became rector of an English church. He was elected assistant rector of 
Trinity, New York, but never returned to America. He died, 181 1, leav- 
ing wife Ann, and one daughter. 

John Watts, son of the Hon. John Watts, member of the Council, 
and Ann de Lancey, was born August 27, 1749. At his graduation he 
delivered the Latin Salutatory. Was Recorder New York, 1774, until 
the war. Member New York Legislature, 1788-93; Speaker, 1791-93. 
Member United States Congress 1792. He married October 2, 1775, 
Jane, daughter of Peter de Lancey, and granddaughter of Cadwalader 
Colden. He was commissioned Major of New York Militia, by the 
British, October 23, 1776. Thomas H. Barclay (class of 1772) was 
his brother-in-law, having married his wife's sister, Susanna. Her 
mother's brother was Richard Nicolls Colden (class of 1766), and her 
sister Margaret married John, son of Edward An till. This John was 
a major in the British service, and after the Revolution went to Canada,

182 Bermuda /stands and their Connection with New York. [Oct. 



By Joseph Outerbridge Brown.* 
Read at a Meeting of the Society, April 13, 18Q4. 

It may be a presumption on my part to assume that there is a single 
individual present who has not visited the Bermuda Islands, or who does 
not know about their formation all that I shall say. But I take it for 
granted that the insignificance of the place has left a few to whom the 
little that I have to tell may be new. 

The islands are the highest ridge and peaks of a great mountain which 
has been for ages sinking beneath the waves. They are surrounded by a 
living coral reef, and that reef marks the northern limit of the coral in 
the Atlantic. The reef runs close to the shore on the south, and twenty 
miles away on the north. Just within the northerly reef there is a large 
rock which scientists tell us is the northerly peak of the mountain. The 
whole English navy can anchor within the reef without scraping a keel. 
The sea sand about the island is not like the gray sand of this region, but 
is dazzlingly white, and the water appears of the color of an emerald. 

The main island is twenty miles long, and from half a mile to a mile 
and a half in width. There are three good roads, which run from end to 
end of the island. 

Some years ago, while examining the newspapers of the colonial period, 
so carefully preserved in the Library of the New York Historical Society, 
I came across several articles complaining of the supineness shown by the 
men of New York and New England in permitting the Bermudians to 
monopolize the carrying trade of the whole coast, from Nova Scotia to 

There may have been exaggeration in these statements, but, after all, 
they were substantially the truth. For the Bermuda vessels were all built 
of the red cedar of the islands, a wood tougher, stronger, lighter, more 
durable, and in all respects better fitted for the purpose than the woods 
of which the American vessels were constructed. Besides, these Bermuda 
craft were manned by negro slaves from the islands — the finest sailors in 
the world — whose wives and children were at home working the gardens 
and attending upon the families of their masters. How could the New 
England or New York boy, ready to go before the mast for good wages 
and with the hope of advancement to the post of mate or captain, enter 
into competition with those who were owned, as were their wives and 
children, by the commander of the vessel in which they were working? 

The continental American, as I may call him, could make a better 
profit by the labor of his slave on shore than he could by putting him at 
work as a sailor, especially as his property was of a different quality from 
the Bermuda negro, as I shall presently try to show. 

As to the Bermuda Islands themselves, they were essentially a part

of America, and should never have been separated from the United 
States. Settled at the same time, by the same classes of people, having 
the most intimate relations with each other, there was no more difference 
between the whites of Bermuda and those of the colonies than there was 
between the provinces of Connecticut and of New Jersey. Every seaport 
town, from Nova Scotia to Georgia, had among its citizens families of 
Bermudians, generally in comfortable circumstances and of good social 
standing. All were brothers, all Americans. It was not until the period 
of our revolution that the islands were torn away from us. But the 
islanders have never ceased to be, and always will be, Americans. 

In January, 1833, tne inhabitants of these islands numbered about 
eight thousand men, women, and children, of whom over five thousand 
were blacks. On the morning of the 1st of August in that year these 
blacks were slaves, but when the clock struck the hour of noon they 
were free, with all the rights and privileges of freemen. The British 
Government had purchased their liberty, and all who were able had 
assembled in the forenoon at their respective parish churches, and were 
on their knees at prayer when the joyous moment arrived. Then they 
broke forth into songs of praise and thanksgiving. I was a small boy at 
the time, but I well remember being on a veranda in the town watching 
the procession returning from St. John's Church, Pembroke, with banner, 
music, drum and fife. 

I had the pleasure several years ago of presenting to this Society the 
volume of the Royal Gazette containing the official list of the owners, 
which is of value as showing that, as a rule, no one person owned more 
than one or, at the utmost, two families, and that in the majority of cases 
such ownership was limited to two or three slaves or even one. 

No old widow, however poor, but that she had at least one servant 
to bring her water from the cistern, and to make her cedar-wood and 
lantana, or, as it is there called, sage-bush, fire. These slaves were all 
either sailors or family servants. There were no vast fields of corn 
or cotton to be cultivated. Each family raised enough corn, cabbage, 
sweet and other potatoes, onions, and cassava for its own use, sometimes 
adding, where the proper soil could be had, a small field of arrow-root 
for the London market. For Bermuda arrow-root, the best in the world, 
was too precious to be generally used at home. It always brought the 
best of prices in London, to which city it was consigned, pledged there 
before a plant was grown. 

The colored people of Bermuda are a peculiar race, fine-limbed, 
straight, tall, and with more than the ordinary number of bright, intelligent 
persons among them. These qualities they probably owe to the fact that 
when the Pequot Indians were defeated in war, scattered, broken up and 
destroyed as a tribe in New England, those who were taken prisoners 
were exported to the Bermudas and found there a ready sale. It was the 
fate of many an Indian boy and girl, and, indeed, many a warrior and his 
squaw, to live and die in these islands, broken in spirit, and accepting 
their enslavement without a murmur. Indians and negroes intermarry- 
ing, the superior race of colored people now inhabiting the islands is the 
result. I think that we can properly claim for this race that they also are 
Americans — aboriginal Americans indeed, as truly Americans as their 
white fellow-countrymen can ever expect to be. 

There are, however, exceptions to the general rule. I well remember 

184 Bermuda Islands and their Connection with New York. [Oct., 

an old Guinea negro, the very picture of those dolls which were so com- 
mon in the shops when we were children, but which we now so seldom 
see. Short, black as jet, with little nose and eyes, and speaking broken 
English in a low voice, old Aaron, who had been a prince in his own 
country, was stolen from his native village and dropped at the islands by 
a slave-ship (doubtless for a good round sum in old Spanish dollars). 
This Aaron, when he became free, married an enormous black woman 
named Rose, who was fully six feet in height and broad in proportion, 
with a voice like a trumpet. Never was there a more ludicrous sight than 
this old couple wending their way to church on Sunday morning, clad in 
all their fineries. We children used to delight in dancing before them 
and singing out, " High Priest Aaron and the Rose of Sharon." Nothing 
could exceed the impotent rage of old Aaron. He shook all over as 
with the palsy, and his jabbering, in his native African language, was 
wonderful to hear, while Rose tried to drive us off with her gigantic arms. 
Peace to their ashes ! They "quietly lie near their old master and mis- 
tress, under the shadow of the parish church of St. John's. 

The Bermuda Islands originally belonged to the company which 
settled Virginia. That company sold them to certain London merchants, 
one hundred and twenty in number, who were incorporated by King 
James I. in 1 6 14, under the name of " The Governor and Company 
of the City of London for the Plantation of the Sorner Islands." Be- 
fore the year 1684 the company had sold all the land to actual settlers, 
and yet insisted upon taxing the islands and upon receiving a proportion 
of all the crops raised. The settlers at last complained to the home 
government, legal proceedings were taken, and the company was dis- 
solved. The English Government itself took the care and control of the 
islands, which it has ever since maintained. 

During the existence of the proprietary government the Church of 
England was the only church. The Lords Proprietors always sent out 
clergymen of the Established Church to the colony. But these clergy- 
men belonged to the extreme Low Church party — indeed, so low that the 
ministers often refused to read the prayers. The Litany, especially, was 
their abhorrence, and the Church of England, in her own pulpits and by 
her own clergymen, was often denounced. These ministers were hand 
and glove with the New England preachers, sharing their views to a great 
extent ; but they did not, as did the Massachusetts ministers, altogether 
give up the services, or ignore the fact that they owed allegiance to the 
mother church. About the year 1643, however, John Oxenford, the 
famous New England minister, and Patrick Copland, as well known from 
Pennsylvania southerly to Georgia as Oxenford was further east, intro- 
duced the leaven of nonconformity. Oxenford soon left, but Copland, 
the Rev. Nehemiah White, and the Rev. William Golding, all clergymen 
of the Established Church, published a declaration to the effect that 
"they did . . . lay down and relinquish their office of ministry in 
the Church of England, acknowledging themselves to be but private 
men," yet, as they held themselves to be a church, of themselves they 
had entered into a covenant among themselves, "and were ready to 
receive any members." The extremists, of course, soon joined them, and 
a church was formed — a church hardly necessary, except as a testimony 
to the truth, as they called it, for there never has been, either before or 
since, in the Established Church of England, wherever settled, such lib-

erty as was then and there enjoyed by its ministers and its members. The 
local government at last took the alarm, mustered up courage enough to 
attack the new organization, and banished it to one of the uninhabited 
Bahama Islands, where the majority of the members endured untold 
suffering, by reason of shipwreck, loss of clothes, and scarcity of provisions. 
Some of the survivors found their way back to the Bermudas. But no 
independent congregational church again raised its head there. The 
Rev. Mr. Copland was not included in the list of exiles, as he had been 
only a sojourner and not a resident, and the court had no power to 
banish him to its penal colony. But he deemed it his duty to follow his 
church, and he did so. 

The last minister sent out by the proprietary government was the 
Rev. John Fowle, A.M., of the University of Dublin, who must have 
been a priest, duly ordained, as the company sent no others. 

In 16S5, however, he is called "an independent minister." 

In 1694 his license was renewed by the new government, and he was 
authorized to preach in any of the parish churches ; but he was to avoid 
casting any reflections upon the Church of England. He could not have 
obtained this new license if he had not received episcopal ordination. 
He was officiating in Devonshire parish as late as 1704, although the 
church had in the year 1700 sent to its Boston, Mass., friends for a 
good, orthodox New England minister. None was sent. Doubtless 
government interfered. The good people had forgotten that times had 
changed, and that conformity to the Anglican discipline and ritual would 
now be enforced. 

The majority soon became used to the new rules. Latitudinarian- 
ism took the place, as it did at home, of the former evangelical spirit 
The ministers drank their wine, and joined in all the gayeties of the 
government party, and the poor evangelicals had no place of Sabbath 

At last, in 17 19, Thomas Gilbert, "for the manifestation of his love 
for the people of the Presbyterian persuasion who were destitute of a 
meeting-house wherein to assemble for the exercise of religious worship," 
conveyed a piece of land in Warwick for the purpose of erecting one. 
The building was soon finished. No objection was made to its use as a 
Presbyterian church, probably because it conformed to the discipline of 
the Church of Scotland. The church is still standing, but was greatly 
enlarged in the year 1837. 

It will be remembered that it was in this same year 171 9 that the first 
Presbyterian church was erected in New York. It stood in Wall Street, 
between Nassau Street and Broadway. That church also conformed to 
the discipline of the Church of Scotland, and its land and building were 
conveyed to the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Scot- 
land, where it remained until after the revolution, when it was conveyed 
to the trustees in New York. 

Is there not reasonable ground for the belief that the erection of these 
two churches, the one in Bermuda and the other in New York, at the 
same time, was in consequence of a mutual understanding between their 
congregations that the work should proceed in both places simultane- 
ously ? The relations between New York and Bermuda at this time 
were intimate. Many Bermudians were settled in New York, and many 
of these settlers retained their homesteads in the islands, and often vis-

ited them. The distance is not great. I have, in a cedar sailing brig or 
schooner, of, say, eighty tons, made the passage in fifty-eight hours. A 
steamer can do little better. 

It was in the first quarter of the eighteenth century, that is, between 
1700 and 1725, that the trade between Bermuda and New York became 
of some importance. The Bermudians had taken possession of Turk's 
Island, one of the Bahama group, and were accustomed to go down 
there every year at the proper season with their slaves to gather salt. 
This salt was carried back with them, and shipped from Bermuda to all 
parts of the American coast. The trade was lucrative. Among the prin- 
cipal New Yorkers engaged in it was the well-known merchant Paul 
Richard, at one time mayor of the city, the descendant of one of the early 
Huguenot settlers of the same name. Richard had a branch of his widely 
extended business in Bermuda. Associated with him were his brothers, 
Eli, John, and Stephen. Eli took charge of the Bermuda business, which 
consisted largely of the exportation of salt from the islands. Eli Richard 
and his family were connected with the new Presbyterian church. He died 
in Bermuda in the lifetime of his brother Paul, leaving two daughters, 
Sarah and Elizabeth. 

Paul Richard died about the year 1756, leaving a will dated in 1749. 
He left no issue surviving him. By his will he divided his large estate 
into five equal parts ; one-fifth part he gave to the children of his sister 
Catharine, one of whom, Gertrude, wife of Dr. Thomas Randall, was the 
mother of Thomas Richard Randall, to whose benevolence and fore- 
sight we are indebted for that well-known institution, the Sailor's Snug 
Harbor. Paul Richard deyised one other fifth part of his estate to the two 
daughters of his deceased brother, Eli, of the island of Bermuda, they to 
be entitled to the same when they respectively became of age. 

We find that Elizabeth Richard, one of these daughters, was in New 
York in the year 1763, for in that year she married Francis Landey Pat- 
ton. Whether he was an American or a Bermudian we have not been 
able to discover. We know, however, that the married pair, after a year's 
residence in New York, sailed for Bermuda with their son, Eli Richard 
Patton, and made that place their home. Mr. Patton's position there was 
one of influence ; he was in public life for many years, esteemed and 

Sarah, the other daughter of Eli Richard, married a Bermudian by 
the name of Place, whose son, Paul Richard Place, married Sarah Jaun- 
cey of New York, and had one son, Marinus Willett Place, who, with 
Eli Richard Patton, son of Elizabeth, owned the property No. 126 Pearl 
Street, Hanover Square, in this city, long occupied by the eminent dry- 
goods firm of Dennis Perkins & Co. as their place of business. I well 
remember collecting the rent, in the forties, when I was a boy, of that 
store. The property was then still owned by the representatives of those 
two sisters. Marinus Willett Place devised his half of the store to his 
mother, Sarah Jauncey, who had married Henry W. Kingsland, of New 
Jersey. I have given, perhaps, more than the fair proportion of space to 
this subject of the Richard family, for the reason that the honored Presi- 
dent of the College of New Jersey, at Princeton, is Dr. Francis Landey 
Patton, the great-grandson of the Francis Landey Patton and Elizabeth 
Richard, his wife, who, with their little boy, left New York for Bermuda 
in the year 1764. President Patton's parents, grandparents, and great-

grandparents were members of the little Presbyterian church, and it was 
through the preaching of the Gospel in that house of God that he him- 
self became rooted and grounded in the faith. 

To go back to the year 1719, when the Presbyterian church in Ber- 
muda was erected. Its first minister was the Rev. John Fowle, the 
Church of England clergyman of whom we have said so much. He 
finally "went over," and was an earnest and devout Presbyterian. His 
ministry was acceptable to his flock, and upon his death the Rev. Josiah 
Smith became the preacher. He, in the year 1828, resigned his charge, 
and became the minister of a church in Charleston, S. C. He married, in 
Bermuda, a lady of excellent social position, and must have been a man 
of education and good sense or he could not have become the minister of 
a leading church in Charleston. 

Mr. Smith was succeeded by the Rev. Mr. Paul, who was from the 
South, and who was still the minister, " an aged wan," in the year 1748, 
when the Rev. George Whitefield, the famous revivalist, visited Bermuda, 
and he received that apostle with open arms. 

He was not alone in this welcoming of the great preacher. High and 
low, rich and poor, crowded to hear him. 

Whitefield brought letters- of introduction from Mr. and Mrs. Smith 
to their friends and relations in the islands, and these were sufficient to 
assure to him attention from the best people. But his fame had preceded 
him. The governor twice invited him to dinner. The houses of the 
members of the council, the judges and the lawyers, were opened to him, 
he was feted and caressed to his heart's content, but after all he dwells 
longer upon his experiences at the Presbyterian church. The following 
is an extract from his diary : 

" Sunday, March 27. — Both morning and afternoon I preached to a 
large auditory, for Bermudians, in Mr. Paul's meeting-house. Abundance 
of negroes and many others were in the vestry, porch, and about the 
house. The Word seemed to be clothed with a convicting power, and to 
make its way into the hearts of the hearers. Between services I was 
entertained very civilly in a neighboring house. Judge Bascom and 
three more of the council came thither and each gave me an invitation to 
his house. How does the Lord make way for a poor stranger in a strange 
land ! After the second sermon I dined at Mr. Paul's, and in the evening 
expounded to a very large company at Councillor Riddle's." 

And so he goes on, page after page, telling of his dinners at the houses 
of all the leading men, and his sermons in the Established and Presby- 
terian churches. 

And then: "Sunday, May 1. — -In the evening I preached in the 
fields to a large company of negroes and a number of white people, 
who came to hear what I would say to the negroes — I believe, in all, 
fifteen hundred people. I gave the audience warning that I should en- 
deavor to imitate the example of Elijah, who, when he was about to 
raise the child, contracted himself to the child's length." He intended 
that the negroes should hear the Word in all its simplicity. 

" The negroes were sensible and attentive. When I asked them if they 
did not all want to go to Heaven, one of them, with a very audible voice, 
said, 'Yes,sir!' This caused a little smiling. He was afterwards questioned 
by somebody why he spoke out so; he answered : ' The gentleman put the 
question to us once or twice, and the other fools had not the manners to 

I 88 Bermuda Islands arid their Connection with New York. [Oct., 

make any answer ; till at last he seemed to point at me, and I was 
ashamed that nobody answered, so I did.' 

"Some of the negroes were angry because I said nothing against their 
masters. Blessed be God that 1 was directed not to say anything this first 
time to their masters ! They would mind all I said to their masters and 
perhaps nothing I said to them. Everything is beautiful in its season ! 
Lord, teach me that due season ! to give black or white a portion of Thy 

He goes on to tell of the negroes and their criticism of his addresses, 
and says : " From all which I infer that these Bermuda negroes are more 
knowing than I would suppose them to be." 

Would not the fact that so many of these colored people were the 
descendants of the American Indians account in some degree for their 
superior intelligence ? 

There were many Bermudians, sea captains and others, who at this 
period were engaged in the trade between the islands and New York, 
among them the brothers James and John Jauncey and Thomas Vardill. 
They all became residents of this city. John Jauncey was famous during 
the French war as one of the most successful of privateers. He and his 
brother James were owners of at least twenty-five vessels built expressly 
for fighting. James by this time was a wealthy merchant, and John com- 
manded his ships and was part owner of them. At one time Thomas 
Vardill was owner with John of the " Snow " and " Mary Anne," carrying 
thirty guns. This Thomas Vardill was (it is asserted) a descendant of 
Robert Vardill, one of the earliest immigrants to the Somer Islands. 
Thomas, his descendant, became port warden in this city. His mother 
was still living in the Bermudas in 1781. 

Thomas Vardill was the father of the Rev. John Vardill, D.D., born 
in New York in 1752, a graduate of Columbia (then Kings) College, 
who was appointed by the college Professor of Natural Law, History, and 
Language at that college in 1773. 

Rev. Dr. Vardill was an enthusiastic loyalist, wrote many pamphlets 
and newspaper articles on the side of the crown, and in 1774 embarked 
for England for the purpose of taking Holy Orders. He was elected in 
the same year assistant minister of Trinity Church, but never returned 
to the United States. He became rector of a country church in England, 
and died there in 181 1, leaving a wife and daughter, but no son. Thomas 
Vardill's first wife was Hannah Tiebout, of New York. He had several 
other children, all born here in New York, among them Robert, Thomas, 
Jonathan, Mary, wife of Thomas Bartow, and Eliza, wife of William 
Mercer, but the name of Vardill is no longer to be met with. 

James jauncey, the merchant, the brother of John, became one of the 
most active members of the Wall Street Presbyterian Church, and he did 
not forget the little Bermuda kirk from whence he came. His counte- 
nance and support could always be relied upon when assistance was 
required. The kirk was soon connected with the New York Presbytery, 
and the intimacy between the churches was very great. 

Upon the death of Rev. Mr. Paul the people applied to the Presby- 
tery of New York for a minister to fill his place. After consulting with 
Mr. Pemberton, the ce ebrated Joseph Bellamy, and Eleazer Wheelock, 
the founder of Dartmouth College, Wheelock recommended his stepson, 
John Maltly of New Haven, a tutor in the College of Nassau Hall (now 

1894.] Bermuda Islands and their Connection with A'ezv Fork. \ Sg 

the College of New Jersey), who was nephew of the well-known James 
Davenport of New Haven. Maltly was ordained by the New York 
Presbytery in 1754, and sent to Bermuda, where he remained until near 
the close of his life, in 1771. 

He was succeeded by the Rev. James Muir, who, while on a visit to 
New York in 1788, was invited to preach in the Brick Presbyterian 
Church in Beekman Street, as a candidate for the office of associate 
minister with the Rev. Dr. Rodgers of the Wall Street Church. For the 
new church had not severed its connection with the old one, the 
associate minister of the Wall Street Church taking charge of the pulpit 
of the Brick Church. 

There were two parties in the church, the one in favor of Mr. Muir, 
and the other desiring the appointment of a Mr. Morse for the vacant 
place. These gentlemen preached for several months on probation, 
and in the meantime the contest ran high and threatened very serious 
consequences, as Dr. Miller says in his life of Dr. Rodgers. It lasted a 
year, when Mr. Morse withdrew. Mr. Muir (afterwards Dr. Muir) 
accepted a call to Alexandria, Va., and the church was left in peace. 

The Rev. Enoch Matson, a native of Pennsylvania, was the next 
minister in Bermuda. He began his labors in the year 1 79 1 . Although 
the political connection between the Somer Islands and America had 
been severed, the people still regarded each other as one people, as, 
indeed, they were. Air. Matson continued to be the minister until his 
death in 1831, at the age of seventy-three years. His funeral sermon 
was preached by the Venerable Aubery George Spencer, Archdeacon 
of Bermuda, afterwards Lord Bishop of Jamaica, W. I. Some of us 
must have seen and heard the bishop at old Trinity, in this city. 

The church is now connected with the Church of Scotland, and 
obtains its ministers from thence. 

During the early years of the ministry of Mr. Matson, Mr. Gardiner 
Spring, afterwards well known as the pastor of the Brick Church in 
Beekman Street (where Mr. Muir had preached so long on probation 
without obtaining the coveted position), went to the islands. In his 
autobiography he gives an interesting account of this early trip he made 
to Bermuda, and his engagement there as tutor. 

He says : "In the year 1805 I accepted an offer to go to the 
islands as teacher, at a salary of fifteen hundred dollars per annum. I 
opened school there and was disappointed. The inhabitants were high 
churchmen, and no ardent friends of the United States. The minister 
was a dissipated, drunken fellow, and the Sabbath day was no rest for 

We cannot think that the rector of the Church of England was " a 
dissipated, drunken fellow," but the young teacher's patrons belonged 
to what was called the best society, who monopolized all the govern- 
ment offices, and belonged to the English Church, gave numerous 
dinners, and expected their minister to be jolly, to drink as many bottles 
of good wine, and to attend as many dancing parties, as they them- 
selves did. This style of life was, of course, excessively distasteful 
to the young New Englander. 

He goes on to say : " The families who patronized me were among 
the aristocracy of the island, and though they treated me with great 
courtesy and kindness, made me feel that, though the instructor of their 

I QO Bermuda Islands and their Connection with New York. [Oct., 

children, I was but a Yankee schoolmaster. They marked my depression 
and my proud spirit, and were not less disappointed with me than I 
was with them. Before the close of my first quarter they paid me a 
full quarter's salary, and plainly told me that I if could not be contented 
to remain they would release me from my engagement. 

" But for an incidental visitation to a neighboring parish, where I 
found a devout Presbyterian church, under the ministrations of the 
Rev. Mr. Matson, I should have at once quitted the islands in disgust. 
The Sabbath I spent in that parish was a day not to be forgotten. I 
was in the midst of a God-fearing people, and heard an evangelical 
sermon. I wept much, and the people saw it. The singing was 
miserable. I endeavored to unite with it. At the close the minister 
and the elders came around me, to inquire the name of the musical 
stranger. I was alone, and again I wept. They took me by the hand 
and introduced me to their families, and after becoming acquainted 
with my history, and my object at the island, they engaged to establish 
,1 school at ' Salt Kettle ' and to give me permanent and profitable 
employment. I found many lovely Christian families there, where, 
stranger as I was, 1 was treated as a son and a brother. " 

So far his diary. 

Before opening his school he went back to New Haven to get 
married, and to bring his wife to the islands with him. 

His first child, Samuel, was born at Salt Kettle ; he says that his 
wife's chamber was amid a bed of geraniums. 

That he had a very flourishing school, and that he and his wife and 
his son enjoyed excellent health. 

He further says : " I remained for more than a year, and went away 
with fifteen hundred dollars in my pocket. It was a delightful year. 
Everybody loved and respected us, and we loved and respected all 
about us, except the poor slaves, who were liars and thieves. 

" The occasion of leaving the island was solely the fear of war 
between Great Britain and the United States, in which event all the 
citizens who had remained on the island for more than a year would be 
regarded as prisoners of war or be constrained to take the oath of alle- 
giance to Great Britain." 

Let me here say that the young Samuel Spring, born in Bermuda, of 
parents so happy and so well suited to each other, lived to grow up to 
manhood and to be a denizen of this goodly city. He married here the 
daughter of Recorder Richard Riker, and his widow and daughter live 
here, and prefer New York to any other place in the world. It was only 
a few days ago that Mrs. Spring kindly sent to me the last Report of the 
Northeastern Dispensary, valuable as containing an excellent portrait 
and an obituary of her brother, the late John H. Riker. I noticed in 
the list of consulting physicians of that institution the name of Dr. 
Ellsworth Eliot, a name not unknown to us, and I have no doubt that 
through him there is already a copy of the Report in this library. 

Great changes have taken place in the Bermudas of late years. The 
gentlemen of the olden time, proud of their grand dinners and their fine 
old Madeira, have disappeared. The colored people have acquired real 
estate. They have one or two representatives in the Assembly. An invi- 
tation to a reception at the Government House can no longer be taken 
as a mark of social standing.

The first blow to the prosperity of the islands was the loss of the salt 
monopoly. The English Government, after a while, became conscious 
of the fact that a colony of theirs had been, for over forty years, colo- 
nizing for themselves, and were exercising supreme control over their 
territory thus acquired ; so Turk's Island was taken away from them 
and annexed to the British West Indies. Then the carrying trade along 
our coast was lost, in consequence of our successful revolution. This 
was the second blow. 

The abolition of slavery in the islands made it necessary to pay 
good wages to the sailors, and, to complete the ruin of the shipping inter- 
est, the colored people of the West Indies refused to eat any longer the 
salted codfish which had been their principal food, and which was to 
them the badge of servitude. Whole cargoes, just from Newfoundland, 
were thrown overboard. The trade in rum, sugar, and fish was at an 
end, and the occupation of the Bermuda skipper was gone. 

The children of these men are now found in every part of the United 
States ; New York is full of them. They and their descendants will 
continue to come here, for there is no opening for them at home. The 
islands are overcrowded. The forests have been . cut down. But the 
place is as beautiful as ever, and attracts many visitors. England has 
made it one of the most strongly fortified of the islands now owned by 
her, and she is continually adding to its strength and resources.

as D. Q. M. General, answerable for all the damages they think they 
have receiv'd and a Writ is out against me for a considerable sum of 
monies on that account together with one for three thousand pounds for 
Hire & damages of 180 Acres of grass Lands for His Majesties Service 
from April 1759 to Jan y 1760, tho the complainant has been offer'd 
to leave the dispute to be delermin'd by reputable arbitrators, he not 
being intitled to as many hundreds & lie claims thousands. As your 
Excellency knows the People here and how extensive the necessary work 
was to enable His Majestys Troops to penetrate into Canada, You will, 
I believe, immediately conclude there is a necessity to take every step to 
prevent these people succeeding in the^e suits to stop a large number of 
much the same kind following directly on their success which would 
be attended with so great expence to the Mother Country who deserves 
another kind of return from a People whome she so lately, at an immence

to say, it appears to me there are two ways to ward off these attacks it 
prevent those intended — namely either by insisting on my not being

question as in Equity they have no right to them & by keeping posses- 
sion of the former which I conceive mav be done with great propriety & 
justice on the inclos'd Grant for the Public use. But from the great 
number of attempts made on your Kxcellency by the Inhabitants of this 
Country to recover Monies for work done and materials furnish'd for 
His Majesty's Service under my direction, with your being sensible not 
one of these Complaints ever appear'd to you to have the least colour of 
justice or truth on their side, but on the contrary, manifest attempts to 
Rob the Public, I humbly think our hopes to save the Mother Country 
from these ungreatful & expensive attacks should not intirely depend on 
a Jury made up of the People themselves, but from an appeal to the 
King in Council if the Suits are given against us, with your Excellencys 
representation of these Peoples behavour as it would make known their 
Base endeavours to Plunder the Public from the commencement of the 
War to the present time and thereby put these first attackers to great 
expence without success, discourage & prevent any more of the kind 
and the Crown be possessed of their Lands again. 

As to my being made the principal in these cases I am perfectly 
easey about it as I am sure of your Excellencys favor from your con- 
stant attention to the Public good & from a faithful discharge of my 
Duty to my King ifc Country consequently cannot fail of the protection 
and support of our Gracious Sovereign & of the best of People. 

I have the honor to be with great respect 

Your Excellencys oblig'd and most obedient humble Servant, 

Jno. Bradstreet. 
His Ex y Sir JefF Amherst, &c, &c", &c.

Campbell of Craignish. — The history of this important branch of the Clan 
Campbell descended from Lochow, and whose records reach back to the twelfth cent- 
ury, is about to be given to the public. The family papers and title deeds have been 
placed for this purpose in the hands of Mr. Andrew Ross, the Marchmont Herald, 
Edinburgh, Scotland, whose recent biography of Alexander Nisbet, the great Scottish 
heraldic writer, prefixed to the " Xisbet Heraldic Plates " recently published by Messrs. 
George Waterston cV Sons, Edinburgh, has been most favorably reviewed by the critical 
journals. Time and accident have destroyed many of the family muniments, but there 

jog Notes and Queries. [Oct., 

remains ample material for an exceedingly attractive and dramatic work. The origin 
of the famous Clan MacRae will for the first time be fully discussed in the light of 
existing documents, and many incidents illustrative of Highland manners and cus- 
toms, preserved in the family papers, will be fully detailed. The documents have been 
placed in Mr. Ross's hands unreservedly, and they disclose many a wild tale of High- 
land warfare and revenge relating to a district of the country which was without the 
control of the royal jurisdiction, and regarding which, consequently, the notices 
appearing in the national records are few and meagre. In addition to the Craignish 
branch of the Campbells, the work will contain historical and genealogical notices 
of the following families : The Campbells of Lochow, Glenurchay, Lochnell, 1 >un- 
staffnage, Barbreck, Ardkinglas, Kilberry, Dannay, Ardchattan, Sunderland, Laggan- 
lochan, Inverliver, Bragglenbeig Askenish, and Carrick ; Macdonald of Islay, Mac- 
donald of Antrim, MacEachairn, McMartine, McArthur, McNaughten, Mclver, 
Mackisage, MacLeod of Rarsay, McNeill, MacCallum of Corvorranbeg, McCallum 
of Poltalloch, McGilleis, Maclachlan and Macfarlane. 

Church Centenary. — The First Church of Christ in East Haddam, Conn., 
will observe the one hundredth anniversary of the erection of its edifice, October 24, 
1894. The structure whose century of existence is to be celebrated is the third 
of those in which the Society has worshipped ; the first, thirty-two by thirty-two, 
was erected in 1704 or 1705 ; the second, forty by sixty-five, was occupied in July, 1728. 
The history of such a church for two centuries, embracing both colonial and State 
life, and including participants in the French and Indian war, the Revolution, the 
second war with England, and the Civil War, would be interesting. Every society, 
civil and religious, should preserve and publish its history ; every church should copy 
its baptisms, marriages, and records. r. h. G. 

King. — Edmund King, Sr., of Halifax Court House, Va., had three wives : 
1, Miss Beavers, by whom he had a son Robert, whose son was William ; 2, the 
widow Thomas, who bore him one child, who died young; 3, Elizabeth, daughter 
of William and Mary (Woodson) Thomas, and niece of the widow Thomas just men- 
tioned. Elizabeth, the third wife, died April 2, 179S, and was buried at Halifax 
Court House ; her children were : Polly, William. James, Edmund, Sarah, Eliza- 
beth, Nancy, Joicy, and Peyton, born between the years 1774 and 1790. 

Is anything known of the ancestry of Edmund King, Sr. ? His children and 
William Rufus King, Vice-President of the United States, born 1786, are said to 
have been second cousins. What proof is there of this?

Tyng. Stewart, Stull, Edwards, Hunter. — Can the readers of the Record 
kindly furnish me any information whatsoever relative to the ancestry, etc., of Rebecca, 
daughter of Gen. Edward Tyng and wife of Gen. Joseph Dudley, of Massachusetts; 
of Miss Stewart, of Calvert County, Md., who married a Benjamin Harrison, of Anne 
Arundel County, Md., and was sister to "a General Stewart of Revolutionary fame," 
to whom, for his services, Congress presented a medal ; of John Stull, who married 
Mercy Williams, sister to Gen. Otho Holland Williams ; of Nancy Edwards, who 
married Zachariah Forrest, brother of Brig. -Gen. Uriah Forrest, of St. Mary's County, 
Md. ; of David Hunter, grandfather of Major-General Hunter, U. S. A. ?

King — Correction. — In the obituary of the late David King, Esq., of Newport, 
R. I., published in the July (1894) Record, it was stated that Lieutenant Philip 
King, of Taunton, Mass., married Judith, daughter of Rev. William Whitman. 

Rev. E. Sanford's pamphlet on the King family of Raynham, published at 
Taunton in 1866, was the authority relied on. A descendant of Lieut. Philip King 
informs the writer that it is now an established fact that Judith Whitman was the 
daughter of Deacon John Whitman, of Weymouth, Mass., whose will mentions her 
by name. r. k. 

Old Register, All Saints' Parish Church, Newcastle-on-Tyne. — It is 
intended to publish the above register of burials, baptisms, and marriages if sufficient 
subscribers can be obtained. 

The register dates back to 1598, is a most important one, and relates to nearly all 
the distinguished families in the County of Northumberland. 

Prospectus and order form may be had from W. Lindsey, Church Warden, All 
Saints' Vestry, Newcastle-on-Tyne, England.

MUNSON. — A history and genealogy of the Munson family has been written and 
will soon be published in two octavo volumes. The work will be profusely illus- 
trated with portraits, views, fac-si miles and charts, and is expected to be of great 
interest to all the Munson connection. 

Barnes.— Correspondence is solicited from the descendants of Timotky Barnes 
or Bams, who was born in 1741 at Hartford, Conn., and died at Litchfield, Conn., 
in 1S25. His wife's name was Eunice Munson. 


Goss. — Information is desired of the nationality and parentage of Charles 
who appeared as "single man" in Chester County, Pennsylvania, about 1721, and 
died there 1732, leaving descendants. J. GRANVILLE LEACH,

Grantmax. — Wanted, the ancestry of Sarah Grantman, who is supposed to have 
lived in New York City some time between 1825 and 1840 ; also the first name of 
her husband. I »id she have any children, and, if so, where are they located ?

Pedigree of Odell, of United States and Canada, 1639-1894, variously 
written in the public records of England as YYadehelle, YYahulle, de Wahul, YVodhull, 
Woodhull, YVodell, Odell, Odill, Odle, etc. Six lines of descent traced by Rufus 
King, Esq., of Yonkers, Westchester County, X. Y. Copyright, 1894. 

This recent contribution to genealogical literature is a large sheet pedigree, giving 
an account of some of the descendants of Mr. William Odell, of Concord, Mass., 
who was a settler there as early as 1639. 

The limited space has been carefully economized, and much valuable information 
condensed. Care has also been taken to cite the authority for statements made. 

Pedigrees arranged on this plan have much to commend them, showing as they 
do at a glance the exact relationship of the several branches of a family. There is 
no turning of pages backwards and forwards, or referring to cabalistic signs and 
figures until the confused reader often lays down the book in despair. 

The Odell family was rent asunder by the dissensions of the American Revolu- 
tion, and we find Lieut. John Odell, with his brothers Abraham and William, stand- 
ing shoulder to shoulder in the patriot army, while their kinsman, the Hon. and Rev. 
Jonathan Odell, espoused the Royal cause, and filled many important offices under 
the Crown. He was the well-known writer whose poetry has been published under 
the title of " The Loyal Verses of Stansbury and Odell." His branch is now rep- 
resented by Major William H. Odell, an officer in the English army. 

In point of arrangement, the pedigree is all that could be desired, and as to its 
typographical excellence, it is enough to say that it is from the press of De Vinne 
& Co. M. s. J. 

Memoranda relating to the Ancestry and Family of Hon. Levi Par- 
sons Morton, Vice-President of the United States (1889-1893). By 
Josiah Granville Leach, LL.B. The Riverside Press, Cambridge, Mass. , 1894. Svo, 
half morocco, pp. 191. 

This is not a campaign biography, but the genealogical history of a man who has 
won his way to wealth and political preferment by force of character and sterling 
integrity. Its author, Mr. J. Granville Leach, well known to genealogists as the 
vice-president of the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania, has indicated the sources 
of Mr. Morton's success by tracing his ancestry back in various lines, and showing 
his forbears to have been men of character and ability. " Blood will tell " is gener- 
ally considered an epigram rather than a truism, but that it is a truism no one 

200 Book Notices. [Oct., 1894. 

appreciates so well as the earnest student of family history. Mr. Leach treats in 
more or less detail of the following families : Morton, Hartpence, Hopkins, Stetson, 
Parsons, Strong, Stebbins, Sheldon, Frairy, Clapp, Holton, Hinsdale, Dickinson, 
Barnard, Marshfield, Foster, and Reyner. The book contains a number of illus- 
trations, has an excellent portrait of Mr. Morton as a frontispiece, and is well 
printed and handsomely bound. T. G. E. 

Some Account of the Temple Family. By Temple Prime (Huntington, 
N. Y. , U. S. A.). Second edition. New York, 1894. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 111. 

The first edition, 1887, of this work was prefaced, "Published to court criticism, 
and to elicit further information." A peculiarity of this writer is the insertion after 
the Christian name, and before the surname, of the Roman numeral which designates 
the several appearances of the name, and when it appears first it seems to create a 
doubt which might be avoided if the I were bracketed, as Robert (1) Temple, rather 
than Robert I Temple. This edition has the arms engraved, which makes intellig- 
ible to all what is without meaning to the great majority. The second is not merely 
the first reprinted with the " further information" elicited, as one might judge from 
a casual glance, or from the paging, which is increased ten per cent. Some twenty- 
four pages on Sir Jno. Temple's connection with the Hutchinson letters, the will 
of Elizabeth Bowdoin, and the diploma of the College of Arms, 16S4, are omitted 
entire ; hence, those who have the first need not cast it aside, as the larger does not 
contain all of the smaller. The press-work is by De Vinne. R. H. G. 

The History of Erie County, Pennsylvania, from its First Settlement. 
By Laura G. Sanford. New and enlarged edition. Published by the author. 1894. 
i2mo, pp. 458. 

This handsome book was printed by the Chautauqua Century, though that does 
not appear on the title page. The author has been active and apparently thorough 
in the collection of facts. What she says in the preface is worthy of repetition : " If 
in every State we had those who were unprejudiced and truth-loving to examine and 
test the supposed history of their respective localities, and to record the testimony of 
the aged, ' before they go hence and be no more,' truth would be vindicated, much 
that is interesting rescued from oblivion, and a correct and minute history of our 
country secured." 

The King Memorial. By Henry P. Phelps. Albany : Phelps and Kellogg, 

1893. S x 9.V, pp. 46. 

This beautiful book, printed for private distribution, has for a frontispiece the 
King Memorial Fountain, erected by Henry L. King in memory of his father, 
Rufus H. King, every expense having been met by Mr. J. Howard King. " Child- 
hood," " Youth," " Manhood," and "Age," full-page pictures from photographs of 
the surrounding figures and groups ; Moses, the main figure; and a rear view of the 
fountain, with portraits of Rufus H. King and Col. Henry L. King, increase its 
value and attractiveness. There are sketches of the Messrs. King, an account of the 
unveiling, and a description of the memorial. It is a worthy record of a noble gift.

The Great Commanders Series — General Washington, by Gen. Bradley 
T. Johnston. General Scott, by Gen. Marcus J. Wright. New York ; D. 
Appleton & Co., 1894. 

The value of this series of short, compact biographies of eminent American mili- 
tary leaders has been greatly increased by the addition of the two books before us. 
As often as the life of Washington has been written, the purely military side of it 
has never been so clearly and succinctly set forth as in this welcome volume from the 
pen of Gen. Bradley T. Johnston; and Genera] Wright deserves unstinted praise 
for his able account of the brilliant career of Winfield Scott. 

Descent of John Nelson and his Children, with Notes on the Families 
of Tailer and Stoughton. By Temple Prime. Second edition. New York, 

1894. Svo, pp. 61. 

This pamphlet, uniform with the " Account of the Temple Family " elsewhere 
reviewed, has just come from 1 )e Vinne's press, and much that was said there might 
be here repeated. Mr. Prime, while perfecting his first edition, has not repeated 
everything here, and both editions are worth preserving. r. h. G.

' ' Those who do not treasure up the memory of their ancestors do*_not deserve to

'\m jjoijli |jen<|aIogi(ial and biographical Socfytg. 


This Society, which was incorporated in 1869, has for its chief 
objects " to discover, procure, preserve and perpetuate whatever may 
relate to Genealogy and Biography, and more particularly to the gene- 
alogies and biographies of families, persons and citizens associated and 
identified with the State of New York." These objects it aims at 
accomplishing : 

First — By meetings for the transaction of business, the interchange 
of views and the reading of appropriate papers, and for discussions 
relative to genealogy, biography and kindred subjects. These meetings 
are held on the second and fourth Fridays of each month (excepting 
July, August and September) at the rooms of the Society, the fourth 
Friday meeting being usually of a social and conversational character 

Second — By collecting and maintaining a Library of Reference of 
such books on History, Genealogy, Biography and kindred subjects, 
both in printed and manuscript form, as may in any way contribute to 
the purpose of the Society. Constant additions are being made to the 
already large and valuable collection of several thousand volumes, and 
contributions of town and local histories, genealogies, early newspapers 
and historical and family papers are solicited. 

Third — By the publication and dissemination, in such form and 
manner and at such times as the Executive Committee may deem best, 
of genealogical and biographical material and information. This is 
mainly accomplished by the publication of a quarterly magazine known 
as the "New York Genealogical and Biographical Record," 
edited by the Publication Committee of the Society, the first number of 

which was issued in January, 1870. The bound volumes of this maga- 
zine (full sets of which may be obtained from the Librarian) contain 
early marriage and baptismal records of many of the Dutch and other 
churches of New York State, family genealogies and historical and bio- 
graphical articles, which are invaluable to those interested in their 
family history. Subscription, $2.00 per annum in advance. The 
Society has also published a limited edition of Vol. 1 of its Collections 
containing the marriage records of the Reformed Dutch Church of 
New York City, 1639 t0 1801, a few copies of which are for sale at 
$15.00 each. 

With a view to increase the usefulness of the Society, and for the 
purpose of enabling it to add to its fund (now amounting, with the 
Coles bequest, to over $22,000) for the erection of a fire-proof building 
to contain the Society's archives and library, applications for member- 
ship are cordially requested. For admission the candidate must be 
nominated by a member and be approved and elected at a regular 
meeting. Initiation fee, $5.00, and annual dues, $5.00, payable in 
advance. The payment of $50.00 in lieu of initiation fee and dues 
constitutes a Life Member. The Hall of the Society, No. 23 West 44th 
Street, is open for the use of the members every week-day from 12 m. to 
5.30 p.m., when the library may be consulted.

Testimonial from the late Hon. Marshall P. Wilder, Ph.D., LL.D., of Boston. 

" No other work is so rich in materials which give an insight into the history of the 
people of New England, their manners, customs, and mode of living in bygone days." 

From the late Col. Joseph L, Chester, LL.D., D.C.L., of London, England. 

" To me the work, of which I possess a complete set, is invaluable. I consult it 
constantly, not only for matters relating directly to Americans, but also in reference to 
English families of the seventeenth century, concerning whom these volumes contain a 
vast amount of information not to be found elsewhere. There are no books in my library 
that I would not sooner part with than my set of the Register."
